In order to try to maintain the love and teaching of reading at home, we have purchased a new online reading scheme, run by the book company Collins.
This will allow teachers to assign books to your child to read on line at home. Parents and carers will receive an email with the login details. It will be starting from 22nd February. Click on the image above for the login page.

Please watch this video to familiarise yourself with the correct pronunciation of the phonemes and digraphs the children are learning. It is very important that the children use these correctly in their reading sessions to help them segment and blend the words they are attempting to decode.
