Reading Books - Reading books and records should be brought to school daily. We encourage children to read every night. Please ensure that once your child has read a book, either they write a comment or you comment and sign so we know if it has been read or not. If part of the book has been read at home, please put the page number which you read up to in case we continue reading at school.
