Useful Information

Welcome to Reception!

Reading 

After a couple of weeks of settling in your child will be given reading books to read at home. Please read with your child regularly and write a brief summary of how your child has read in your child's reading record. At first your child will be given books with no words in it, it is important to encourage your child to explain what they think is happening in the pictures as this will develop your child's comprehension skills.

Reading books will be changed every Monday and Wednesday, where your child is able to choose 2 books to take home at a time. If your child would like to change their book more regularly then they may help themselves. 

Your child will also be given keywords to learn.  As the first 45 keywords are learnt, you will begin to see your child's reading really progress. You will need to keep revising the keywords in their keyword books as it is easy for children to forget them at this stage in their learning. 

The more keywords your children retains, the higher they will climb up the 'Butterfly Chart', where they will receive a gold certificate when they have reached the top of the chart. Your child will be tested on their keywords weekly and given new words if they read the given keywords correct by sight. It is important to note that the words need to be read by sight. Please keep the words in your child's book bag.
