We would like the children to continue to read for some time each day using Oxford Reading Buddies. Please do email the class teacher if you cannot find it. You can also add other books that you read at home to the wider reading log on Oxford Reading Buddies.


We would also like the children to use one of the books they have read OR one that you have shared and talked about together to complete one of the activities in the grid once a week. If the children are happy to do two or three a week that would be amazing but we're hoping that once a week is do-able. The most important thing is that children are reading regularly themselves and having the opportunity to share and discuss other books too but having the opportunity to record some of their response would be really beneficial.


We have included the templates that you could use to support this, if you are able to print at home, or just record in your own way on your own paper/in exercise books. This grid can be used for the duration of the half term and you can pick and choose your activities for different books.


For anything additional that you may wish to do, please check the recommended websites for reading and phonics games on this year group page.
