Banded reading books
Please keep these at home at all times except your child's "change-over day", when they will return their book and be issued with a new one, and book mark if appropriate.
We expect your child to read their book a number of times, in order to develop their fluency, which includes automatic word recognition, smoothness, expression, pace and intonation. We want them to "read it like they mean it!" It is also very helpful to ask your child questions about their text, including retrieval questions (what, when, who) and inference questions (looking for clues - why do you think...? how do you know....?)
Even if your child is able to read silently in their head, they should also regularly practise reading aloud to you, to develop their fluency.
If you have any questions about any of this, please email the office.
Each child is in a group with a specific change-over day as follows:
|Group Name||Change-over Day|
|Stig of the dump||Friday|
