Reading

Thank you to all of the parents who attended our reading meeting in September. We hope that you will have lots of fun reading books with your child regularly at home. Please make sure that your child brings their book bag to school everyday!

We are developing a love for reading with your child in our class. We will read individually with your child at least once a week where we will change your child's home reading book. In addition to this, we will read 3 books a day as a class and we will discuss the characters, setting, problem and solution within the story. 

Please see below the powerpoint from our Reading Meeting.
