St Anne's Infants' School


Reach for the Stars


We love reading in Year 1 and we take every opportunity to listen to, retell, and share stories together.


Please read at home with your child at least 3 times per week. It is helpful to hear your child read aloud so, with your support, they can work on their expression, fluency and comprehension. Please write a brief comment in your child's reading record - would also love to hear about any further reading your child has enjoyed, for example other books, menus, magazines, road signs. 


To encourage a pleasure for reading we have an exciting whole school reading challenge.  If your child reads three times per week they will receive a piece of pasta to put into the class reading jar.  When the jar is full, the children can choose a class treat to enjoy for all their efforts!  Don't forget to tick the reading grid attached to their reading records.  


Books are changed when they have read them twice and we encourage the children to do this themselves so they are choosing a book of interest to them.  Some children need a gentle reminder from home to change their books!  Please note from book band turquoise 17 onwards book can be changed after one read.  


If ever you have any questions about supporting your child to read at home, please do not hesitate to ask.


Happy reading! smiley
