Reading Practice Sessions
The children will also take part in reading practice sessions. These sessions are run in small groups of around 6 children, are timetabled three times a week and taught by a trained adult. The book that each child will be reading, will be carefully matched to their secure phonic knowledge.
The children will only begin these sessions once they are able to blend sounds to read simple words. As this happens at different times for children, some children will begin reading practice sessions sooner than others. Any child who cannot blend will be given additional blending practice every day until they can blend and can begin reading practice sessions.
Children will bring their reading book home for additional practise and so that you can see the phonemes and tricky words that they have been working on and the progress that they are making with their reading.
As the children will also be using their reading book during the Reading Practice sessions in school, it is vital that your child brings their book in their reading packet to school every day.
