Reading Groups


Posted by Jen Jamieson | Posted in Literacy, Parent Information | Posted on 17-09-2013

Over the course of this week, I am rearranging the children into different reading groups.

As the children progress through their keywords, it is essential that the books they bring home are at an appropriate level. I also need to be able to manage our book cupboard, so having 12 children read the same book (when we only have 10 in school) is impossible! I apologise for any inconvenience or confusion in advance, as some children will change reading days or group names. Please see your child’s reading diary for details.

Changing children between groups now and then is all part and parcel of life in Primary 1 – nothing to be concerned about. Just because your child has changed groups does not mean they are “falling behind” or finding things difficult. Please be assured that if I thought we needed to give your child more support, I would be in touch immediately. Assume everything is fine unless stated otherwise!
Could I also ask parents to ensure that reading bags/diaries/extended stories are returned on the correct day? If these are not handed in before lunchtime it makes things difficult for us in school, especially if another group is waiting to read the book you have at home. Unfortunately, if a child does not return their reading things, we cannot send a new book home. We will, however, work on the book in class with the rest of their group.

Thank you for your continued support.
