Please read with your child every day for 10 minutes. I will read with your child every week and I'll comment on their progress and targets in their reading record. Can you please sign your child's reading record at least 3 times a week to show that your child has been reading at home. When your child returns their reading book, it will be placed in quarantine, therefore it will only be changed once a week. Your child can read the same book repeatedly over the week, as they become familiar with the story, ask them questions about the characters and setting. Encourage your child to write and draw in their reading record.

Thank you:)
