 3) Reading: 

Reading Books:

Please can your child bring in their reading book and reading record everyday so we can listen to your child read. Reading books will be changed once a week on a Tuesday. Children are expected to read at home to an adult on a daily basis and 3-5 comments about your child's reading should be written in their reading record book each week.

All children who record 3 entries into their reading journal each week will automatically receive either a house-point token or a token for the prize box for the weekly competition and children who record 5 entries will either receive 3 house-point tokens or 3 tokens for the prize box.

At the start of the Rhino Reader book it is necessary to practise the sounds that will be needed for your child to fluently read the book.

The visual prompt can be very effective in helping the students remember the sound and to improve their confidence. This can then be referred to in the text whilst reading a word with that sound. For example,  make has the a-e as in cake sound.

After practising the sounds the next step would be to practise the focus words to increase fluency whilst reading.

Finally, practising the common exception words (tricky words) will greatly increase confidence whilst reading the text and encourage students to read them straight away as sight words. Students will learn these common exception words by practising because they are words that can’t be entirely phonetically sounded out.  For example, thought– ough is making an or sound. 

Before progressing to reading, I would ensure that the children are confident with the sounds, focus words and common exception words needed for the book.

If you would like a copy of common exception words, phonics sound strips, these can be provided by contacting my email.
