Children have been enjoying the whole class reading texts this year. Across the three classes, children will be reading: The Sheep Pig, Bill's New Frock, The Firework Maker's Daughter and Earth Shattering Events. 

We are giving the children plenty of opportunities to read in school across a variety of contexts and would like to emphasise the importance of reading to and with your child at home. It is okay for your child to record their reading themselves in their reading diary, although we ask for an adult to acknowledge this at least once a week.
