A note about reading/reading books

Reading takes place in a variety of forms in Yr2.

During the teacher-led part of a lesson, we often do shared reading with the class. This is also true of guided reading, though there are usually only five or six children participating at any one time. Your child will take part in guided reading at least once a week.


Several parents have had queries regarding the changing of reading books. Please be aware that books are changed when your child reads with an adult and that this is not done on a daily or even weekly basis.


Every effort is made to hear your child read individually and this will generally be once every two weeks, though some children are targeted more frequently. (They will be moved up a level of reader when they are reading reasonably fluently and are able to answer questions about what they are reading).


It may be that the book your child brings home is finished within the first week and then we would encourage you to read a variety of other fiction and non-fiction texts with them. Remember your child also has a school library book which they are encouraged to change once a week. (We encourage them to choose texts that broadly suit their level of reading – please discourage them from wanting chapter books that they are not yet ready to read).

Useful websites that the children may find of interest linked to their learning will be added so that your child can access them easily from home.
