Children should be encouraged to read at home once a day for around 5-10 minutes, supported by an adult who will be able to comment in their reading diary. This year, book marks will be sent home for parents to use during this time, as they have prompt questions written on them, which can be asked to children to gauge if the reading has been understood.
Book Club Reading Scheme
Moorcroft Wood Primary School have invested in a reading scheme to help support children with their reading in school and at home.
The Bug Club combines printed books with interactive eBooks to create a unique learning platform which is proven to help children make 30 months of progress in reading in just 18 months! It can also be accessed through any device that is connected to the internet including your home PCs, tablets and mobile devices.
Each child has their own individual "log in" that takes them to a special home page.
Here they will find a selection of books already allocated to them dependent on their present Book Band.
A key benefit to this scheme is we here at school will be able to see what books each child has read, how often it has been read and how questions have been answered demonstrating their understanding of what they have just read.
