All children have their own ‘Reading planet’ platform to access books allocated by either Mrs Challoner or myself. You can find your child’s user name and password on the front page of their yellow reading diary. Your child will be allocated two books each week (every Tuesday) which they should read at home.
Our reading books are specifically chosen for your child linked to the sounds they have covered that particular week in class. This gives the children the opportunity to practise these sounds within words at home. Please refer to the phonics tab within ‘Spring 1’ to see which sounds your child has covered in their phonics group. If you are unsure which phonics group your child is in, please speak with either Mrs Challoner or myself.
You can read the books as many times as you like, and even go back to reread past favourites. This is always an excellent way to practise previously taught sounds. Please ensure that you click on ‘finished’ when your child has read a book to enable them to complete a short comprehension quiz at the end and collect stars. We also ask that you comment in your child’s reading diary after they have read a book. If you are unsure about anything regarding ‘Reading Planet’ please do not hesitate to speak with either Mrs Challoner or myself for assistance.
