READING BOOKS

All children will be bringing home 2 phonetically decodable books each week on a Friday. These books match the level the children are reading at and should be read with parental support. Children will also be bringing home a reading for pleasure book that the child has chosen to share happily with someone in your household smiley PLEASE ensure all books are returned by Wednesday the following week. PLEASE take the time to read with your child every week at home and sign their reading record.

We love reading at St Luke's and our classroom is over flowing with so many wonderful books including fiction and non fiction. What ever you like to read, here in school we will have something for you!

It is so important to continue this love of reading at home. This could be on your own, with a friend or with a family member. Spending 30 minutes a day reading will really help to improve your reading skills and your vocabulary.
