Reading at Home
It is an expectation the children read 4 times a week at home.
Please complete your child’s reading journal if they have read at home.
A signature is needed from an adult to show this has been done.
Please also use the Reading Journals to communicate with me - I will read them daily and I am happy to help in anyway.
I aim to make the children’s KS1 journey enjoyable and fun.
