Reading - Please let us know if you need any new books added to your rising stars account.

Please make sure that you read every day to an adult and discuss the text.

You could read anything from your house - books, comics, cereal packets, tv subtitles.

Don't forget that you have access to Rising Stars reading planet where you will find the same books that we normally send home (this will be another way for us to know that you are engaging with school work).  If you have forgotten your log in details then please do get in touch.

Oxford Owls is another great website with a wide range of books at different levels

Can you remember all these different sounds?  

Read them all out loud then check if you are right by watching the video of me saying them:
