Reading

When children start in Reception they will begin to bring home Set 1 sounds. Once the children are able to recognise these sounds they will begin to bring home an Oxford Reading Tree conversation book.
Once children can blend fluently, they will begin to bring home a Read Write Inc book and an Oxford Reading Tree Book.

At the back of the book are find it/prove it questions for you to do with your child.
