Reading Books
 

You can help your child at home to make maximum progress in Year 2 by listening to them read regularly. Throughout Year 2, we hope that your child's reading fluency and comprehension will increase dramatically and so it's vital that they get as much opportunity to practise as possible.

 

The children will have an opportunity on a Wednesday to change their reading books. They select 2-4 books that they are interested in from the colour that they are currently reading. We advise that the children enjoy a good variety of fiction and non-fiction books and re-read these several times at home to build up fluency. Please write a short comment in the home-school book when you have read with your child.
