The books that your child will be bringing home this year will be different. As required by the government we have moved towards purely decodable (phonic) reading books for the early stages of our children’s reading journeys. We have chosen to base our book progression on “Read, Write Inc” a scheme we have been using in school for a while. Please be aware that the colour of the RWI books do not correlate to the scheme followed in the last academic year. Whilst these assessments are being carried out we will be sending children home with tricky words and phonic activities to practise. You can hear how to say the sounds your child will be practising here, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TkXcabDUg7Q.
Due to the current situation with Covid 19 we have changed the way in which we swap reading books so that we can allow books to be quarantined between readers. Books will be changed on Tuesday and Friday in Year 1 and Year 2. We won’t be writing in your child’s reading record and will instead keep our own records in school. We will send one home with your child's first book on Tuesday 22nd September and would ask that you use this to record what your child reads at home and we will check it regularly.
In order to get a new book, your child must return their current RWI book on Tuesdays or Fridays.
If you have any questions about reading please do not hesitate to send an email to Year2@stpatricksbristol.org.uk.
