Learning, loving and growing; together as God's children

Welcome Message

Your child's books will be changed on a Monday and Thursday, in school. However, you also have the opportunity to read new books online.

Although your child will be taught to read at school, you can have a huge impact on their reading journey by continuing their practice at home.

There are two types of reading book that your child will bring home:

A reading practice book. This will be at the correct phonic stage for your child. They should be able to read this fluently and independently.

A sharing book.  This will be chosen from our library. Your child will not be able to read this on their own. This book is for you both to read and enjoy together.
