We love to read in Year 1 and are so happy when children tell us about their favourite books. To improve your child’s reading it is so important to read with them every day, even 5 minutes can make all the difference. Really focus on asking questions about their book as this will help them with their reading comprehension. Children should bring their book bags everyday to school so reading records can be checked. Books will be changed every Monday and Thursday.
