Helping children to develop a love of books – both fiction and non-fiction – is one of our principal aims in Reception. We share at least one book per day in class. It is really important that children are also exposed to books at home. An ideal time to share a book together is at bedtime, just before the child goes to sleep.

Your child will regularly bring home new books to share. These will include:

  • a picture book from the library that you read to your child
  • a reading book that they read to you

Children should read their reading book every day, even when this means re-reading it. Each time they read it, they will become a little more confident, and will eventually be able to read the words in different contexts, e.g. in other books, on signs, and so on.


Library books are changed on Tuesdays.
