Reading in Year 1 is still a vital part of the day. Children will each be given a reading book and a reading record. We encourage children to read for at least 10 minutes a day, although this doesn’t always have to be their given reading book. Children’s books will be changed regularly and they will be given opportunities to read books in our class library regularly.
