During home learning, please continue to listen to your child read daily. If you are unsure on what books you child is reading, then please contact your child's class teacher via the class email.
When children begin school, they are taught phonics. Phonics is a method for teaching children how to read and write an alphabetic language. At Maypole, we follow the Read Write Inc scheme and we use the children's phonics assessments to match an appropriate reading book. Please click on the document below where you will be able to access Read Write Inc books.
Once children have completed RWI books, they can then move on to banded books. Please click on the document below where you will be able to access banded books. If you are unsure on what colour band your child is reading, then please contact your child's class teacher. Once your child is fluent and has a good understanding of the text, then you may wish to progress them on to the next band. Once children return to school, book bands will be reviewed by your child's class teacher.
You are also able to create a free Oxford Owl account that will allow you to access even more books for your children to enjoy!
