Reading Update

The children are really enjoying taking part in our year two Little Wandle reading groups at school. We hope you all enjoy discussing the texts they have been reading and learning about in depth at school. The children have now been given a school reading book, reading diary and folder. It is really important that the children bring their reading folder into school EVERY day so they can be read with individually and so that staff can change their books each week. We hope you are all enjoying reading and sharing lots of books together at home and please do not hesitate to speak to a member of the year two team if you have any questions about, or need any support with reading at home or school.
