The children should be reading daily and it should be recorded in their reading journals. Daily reading to an adult is so important and has a huge impact on the progress they make with their reading. Reading books will be changed approx. 3 times per week.
We will visit the library once per week. Children will only be able to take out a new book if they return their current one.
1P – Friday, 1CM – Thursday
