We always encourage all children to read at home and we know many of you have many lovely books to read. In order for your child to continue being able to read book banded reading books selected at their level of reading ability, your child now has an account with Bug Club https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/login?c=0 where they have been allocated reading books based on their book band or reading age. They have books to read in ‘My Stuff’ and then after completing all of the activities based on the books, they will go into ‘My Library’ to read. Please use our pupil guide below to help you navigate Bug Club. You should have received their username and password through an announcement on Class Charts (the school code is popr). If you have not received this, or have trouble accessing the site, please email your child's year group address.

We recommend reading 1 or 2 books a week rather than racing ahead - quality reading rather than quantity will help you improve your reading more. The first reading should focus on decoding, the second reading will focus on comprehension and completing the activities and try some reading with prosody (intonation, pitch and expression) for a few pages too when you read aloud.

Home learning packs are also available from the Hamilton Trust https://www.hamilton-trust.org.uk/blog/learning-home-packs/

Each pack contains 5 days of mixed reading, grammar, spelling and writing opportunities, planned around a weekly theme. Some days contain a lot of activities so please don't feel pressured to complete everything. Notes for parents and carers are included, as well as sheets which can be printed for children to work on. However, this is not essential and written responses could be recorded on paper, in a notebook, or typed.
