In Year 2 we have a class library within the classroom. Every Thursday children will be able to choose a book to bring home for the weekend. Library books should be returned to school on a Monday if possible, this is to allow the books to be quarantined before being returned to the class library ready for Thursday.
There are a wide range of books in our class library, from picture books with relatively few words per page to longer chapter books. The children will be able to read some library books themselves but may sometimes need an adult to share and read their book with them. Reading to your child at this age is extremely valuable. Listening to an adult reading aloud teaches children how to read with expression and intonation. Additionally, reading a more challenging book also provides an excellent opportunity to check your child's understanding of texts.
Children are never too old for a bedtime story.
