Reading at Home - Organisation and Expectations


Children in Year 2 might bring home either a Read, Write, Inc Book Bag Book or colour-banded book. This will depend on their phonetic ability. 

All children are expected to read out loud to an adult or older sibling at least 4 times a week. Children who read 4 times a week, and have their reading diary signed by an adult/older sibling, will earn a Monkston point. 

All children are expected to read each book they bring home twice before they change it. 


Please find 'Top Tips For Reading at Home' in our 'Practicing at Home' page.
