Please ensure that your child is reading everyday (this can be a home book, magazine, comic or from the online Oxford Owl website) and recording their reading in their reading books. The more exposure to the written word the better their writing becomes. They can read any book; it doesn’t always have to be a school given book. We want your child/children to develop a love of books and enjoy reading for pleasure. Try to make time to share a book together as part of your evening routine.
