Reading in Year 2
We expect all of the children in Year 2 to read regularly.
Reading Records need to be completed at home. We encourage children to read at least five times a week.

Please ensure these records are in the book bags everyday so that we can monitor them.

The children are given the opportunity to change their books each morning.

The children take one book to share from the book corner and one from their ability level to read to an adult.
