The Home/School Reading Books

What books will my child bring home?


Your child will bring home:

  • Reading Book
  • Chosen Book (from class library and/or school library)


Reading Book

This is matched to your child’s reading ability. In Reception and KS1 children will take home books that at matched to their current phonics lessons and therefore the children should be able to read the book fluently. Our home reading books are from Oxford Reading Tree scheme. 


Chosen Books

This is a chosen book from the book corner, library or home that your child would like to read. Depending on what they have chosen, they may need some support to read it. 


Reading Buddy

All children have a log in to Reading Buddy where they can read books at their level online. The buddy will prompt children to support them with comprehension and quizzes will help assess children and inform teachers of progress.


Reading with your child at home

    We recognise that a strong home-school partnership, with shared reading values, is an essential factor in every child’s successful reading development. We ask parents to support our reading aims and vision by reading, talking about and enjoying books with their child, at least four times a week. We also offer parent training and workshops to support parents to achieve this aim.
