Reading is an essential life skill; being able to read well is directly linked to success in school. As your child moves through year one, they will work hard to develop their understanding of phonics to enable them to segment and blend words to build their reading fluency and accuracy. Children will read every day in school through individual, guided, paired and whole class reading sessions, but it is vital that they continue to read at home, and your continued support with this is essential. Each night, please sit with your child as they read to make sure they are reading the text as it is written and discussing the content of what they have read with them. Dojo points are awarded to children who read each night at home.
