Support for Parents/Carers
Parents and Carers are asked to support their child by reading to them and listening to them read their ‘My Phonics Book’ ‘or the book given to them by their teacher, at least three times a week. We ask parents to write when they have heard their child read in their Home/School Reading Diary. Teachers will also write in this when they have read at school to let you know how your child is progressing with their reading.
Our aim is that when the children leave Holt House to move on to junior school they are able to read ‘like breathing’. We will work with any families having difficulties to support children at home to try and break down these barriers. This will be done on an individual basis for each family but may include chats with teachers at the beginning / end of the day, telephone calls or support from Mrs Percival at an Early Help level.
