We love reading!


In Year 1 we promote a love of reading and encourage as much home reading as we can. We expect all children to read aloud a minimum of three times a week.

In their book bag each child should have:

  • A book that they can read to you by using their sounds.
  • A phonics booklet to practise ready for their phonics lessons.
  • Please bear with us while we organise your child a book.

Remind your child to use their robot arms to sound out and remember that some words are tricky, you just have to learn them!

Have fun reading your books together, talking about it and asking them questions.

We will celebrate children who have tried to read at home.


Here is a reminder of the sounds the children were learning in Year R. We will continue to work on them in year 1.
