At Treeton C of E Primary we see reading as a priority as it is a vital skill for life. Once children have mastered the basics of decoding words it is important that they continue to read regularly both in school and at home to build up fluency and confidence. They also need to develop a deeper understanding of the texts they read by asking and answering questions.
We read with your child on many occasions each week in school. Each week your child will read in a guided reading group with their class teacher and individually with their teaching assistant. There will be many other opportunities for reading through their Literacy lessons and daily phonic sessions.
Reading is still the main focus for homework and we ask that you make time to read with your child three times a week. We check reading diaries each week and award stickers for reading 3 times at home.
If you have any questions about how we teach reading or what you can do at home to support your child's reading please feel free to ask.
