Reading

 

As I am sure you are aware reading at our school is really valued and we recognise the importance of sharing a book at home to improve reading skills. We are therefore recommending the website www.home.oxfordowl.co.uk to help to continue this learning at home.

Help your young child learn to read, and love to read, with the free eBook library. The eBooks have been developed for children aged 3–11, to teach them to read using phonics.

As well as much-loved characters such as Biff, Chip and Kipper and Winnie the witch, you’ll also find some great non-fiction eBooks to help your child explore their world.

I have included a full table of Oxford Levels and book bands used at our school. It will help you to become familiar with which levels suits your child (your child will be aware of their current reading colour) and how levels 1-20 relate to book bands.  Most of our KS2 children are free readers and can choose books to read for pleasure.

It is very important that phonics is continued at home. As you are aware we use read write inc and this website will guide you through everything you need to know about the approach we use to phonics in school including videos regarding pronunciation, speed sounds etc.

There are also reading comprehensions for our older children to continue to improve SATS skills.

Other recommended websites linked to reading:

EPIC – thousands of free ebooks so either join for 30 days free or email school for information.  www.getepic.com

Phonics play is a great website with games for each phase, especially for children in year one who have their phonics screening this year.

World book online provides thousands of free online books too.

If you do not have access to the internet please contact the school and we will support you in a different way.
