We are working hard to improve our reading in Year 1. We have a wonderful volunteer who reads 1:1 with the children once a week. We read as morning work 3 times a week and also have Guided Reading lessons daily. 

During Guided Reading we read both as a whole class and in groups with a teacher to guide our developing skills, and we complete comprehension activities. Children will also read with a TA or teacher during the week.

Whenever a child reads to their grown-ups at home it should be written in their Reading Record. We then count up how many times each child has read in a week so we can update our Reading Island every Friday. Each recorded read is one jump on Reading Island. The children work their way to treasure and once they have reached treasure they start again. This really helps to motivate the children to read regularly at home!
