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.
