  1. 1. Parents Guide To Reading Ecton Brook Primary School
  2. 2. At Ecton Brook we want your child to become an enthusiastic and engaged reader. We want your children to develop a love of reading as we feel it is the key to being a life long learner.
  3. 3. Ten minutes a day could make a difference.
  4. 4. We can make that difference together. Your role is to make reading enjoyable. The more interest and enthusiasm you show in your child’s reading, the more their confidence will grow! Our role is to teach the skills of reading so that they can apply these at home.
  5. 5. How the brain works when reading?
  6. 6. Teaching of Phonics into Reading • Phonics is the start of the children learning to read • Phonics is the sound letters make and then a grapheme is what it looks like. • Phonic lessons happen every day and focus on this relationship • Start by learning the 26 individual letter sounds (see blog) • Move onto the more complex sounds (see blog) • digraphs (two letters one sound) • trigraphs (three letters and one sound) • Once they have learnt the 42 different letter sounds and their families they must choose the appropriate sound to use when decoding.
  7. 7. Developing Readers • Children are introduced to reading books in reception • Importance of caring for books • Using pictures to help understand the book • Reading cvc words and starting to recognise high frequency words (these are now known as common exception words or sight words)
  8. 8. Reading books • When children are more confident:- • Work in ‘Book Talk’ to read text and respond to questions • Taught how to complete written comprehensions • Many literacy lessons are based on a book and different reading skills are taught • Skills the children will learn • Direct retrieval of information – written in the text • Inference – using the knowledge of the characters and the plot • Deduction – using their understanding of other books and life experiences
  9. 9. Stage books • At the start of the year children assessed and placed on a stage book (this may change from the July) • Children are then regularly assessed against the stages throughout the year. • The early stages we are looking for fluency • Not sounding out every word. • No hesitation on the sight words. • Creating a flow to their reading. • The books are changed between two and three times per week but we do still want to see their reading records.
  10. 10. Strategies for reading at home. • Read the book to the child or share the reading activity • Read the words that occur frequently (names, places, objects) • Spend time using the picture clues to make links to the sentences • Make the book sound interesting (use different voices, etc..) • In the second read, the children reads the book. • Allow them time to sound out then if they cannot decode read the word. • Praise their efforts in decoding, reading of sight words and fluency • In the third read they should have more fluency.
  11. 11. In the last 5 years Ecton Brook Primary School have spent £45,000 replacing stage books (mostly between stage 3-10)

  15. 15. How to encourage your child to read Read yourself! Set a good example by sharing your reading. Let your children see that you value books and keep them at home. Keep books safe. Make your child their own special place to keep their books. Show them how to turn pages carefully. Point out words all around you. Help your child to read the words around them: on food packets in the supermarket, on buses, in newspapers, in recipes. Visit your library – it’s free to join! All libraries have children’s sections. Many also have regular storytelling sessions.
  16. 16. How to encourage your child to read Make time to read. Read a bedtime story with your child every night. Encourage them to share reading with grandparents, brothers and sisters and aunts and uncles. Keep in touch with school. Make sure your child swaps their home reading books regularly at school and try to make a regular time slot of about 10 minutes to hear them read. If English is not your family’s first language: You can buy dual language books. You can talk about books and stories in any language.
  17. 17. Choice of Reading • As well as using the stage books we would encourage this is suplimented by a range of texts - books, comics, magazines. • Also widen there exposure to different authors.
