Little Wandle Reading Books



As you are aware, children on our Little Wandle phonics scheme take part in three reading practice sessions per week in class. They then take this book home to read to further embed their phonics knowledge by reading the book to a parent/carer. Please write the name of the book, date read and a short comment when you have read the book with your child. 


The book, when returned, goes straight back to the set of 6 books required for the next group to read the following week.


When a book is not returned, the set is incomplete, meaning that groups of children who are reading in these sessions do not have enough books to have one each. For these sessions to be successful, every child needs a book - all sets need to be complete please.


We are asking for you to support us with this. Please make it a priority to return the book back to school on time. We are going to start to charge for unreturned books - the cost will be £4.75 per book. This is the cost for the book to be ordered and replaced so that the book set is complete and ready for a group to access. 


Thank you for your understanding and support. 

A warm welcome to Year 2 from all of the staff working across Year 2...

On this web page we will include photographs and examples of our work for you to enjoy at home. There will be links to websites to practise things that you have learnt at school and help you with your homework. 

  • Reading books will be changed when the children return them to school. Books will be changed two times per week.


    When you receive a new book, please read the book more than once as this provides the opportunity for your child to build their fluency. Once you have read the book several times and your child builds their understanding of the text, then please ask them multiple questions about what they have read. 

  • Spellings are uploaded on a Friday and should be practised in time for the Spelling Test the following Thursday.
  • PE is currently on a Monday. Children need to come to school in their PE kit as we are not getting changed in school at this time. Our PE day will change every half term and new dates refreshed on here and announced on Class Dojo.
  • We would appreciate any contributions to our class funds. This can be handed to any of the adults in class who will then record it in our class fund book. This will go towards additional extras in our learning and for rewards in class. We will let you know how we have spent your kind donations on our Class newsletter.
  • Please ensure you are connected to our Class Dojo page where we will send messages and post reminders you may need. We will also share class specific information on Dojo.
