Reading at home

Reading remains one of the most important things your child can do at home. All children have taken home several reading books from school. Please try to ensure they read with you every day. Last week, we suggested that you could come up to school to change reading books but, in light of recent government advice, we now think it is better to stay away from school as much as possible so please do not come up to school to change reading books. Teachers will be putting reading advice, guidance and reading activities on the website.

If your child has an Accelerated Reader login they can still complete the quiz on their reading book just like they do at school. Most books have quizzes on the site so it doesn’t have to be just school books you quiz on – try your own home books too. Here is the link to access the site. Children should know their logins as we use this every day at school but please get in touch with your class teacher if they are unable to access it. Teachers will monitor usage so get quizzing.

If your child has a Lexia login then please ensure your child accesses Lexia for at least 15 minutes per day but the more they do, the better. Usually I print out certificates and give these to children at school but while we are closed I will email them individually.

There are lots of great resources on Oxford Owl – you can get a free parent login and use resources from there.

At school, we use PhonicsPlay which is really helpful for younger children – username march20 password home
