Reading Books

4th September 2016


In Year 2 your child will get 3 reading books.

The Read, Write Inc. book is the one we recommend you read the most (ideally every night). Your child should enjoy reading this book and should be able to read this book fluently. It is excellent practice for your child to re-read the same Read, Write Inc. book to develop their understanding and comprehension skills. This book will be changed weekly (except for one week per half-term when it is 'Assessment Week').

The Oxford Reading Tree book is an extra reading scheme. We recommend you read this a few times a week. This book should last longer than a week and should also be re-read so children really understand the content. When you are confident your child fully understands the content please leave a note in their diary saying 'Please change book' and we will change it as soon as possible. 

Finally, your child will also get a choice of a Library book. This is to promote a 'love of reading'. They have free choice from the class library and may choose a book that is above or below their reading level. If the book is too hard you may wish to read it to them and talk about it. Your child can keep this book until they want to swap it for another.
