We encourage Pinehurst parents and carers to read with their child every night. All children have a Home Reading Record book. We invite parents to sign or make a comment to help support their child’s reading at home. Children have the opportunity to change their reading books regularly.
We encourage a love and respect of books and it is helpful when children spend time at home talking about books and reading. Encouraging the children to ask questions and say what is happening in the pictures and why are good starting points. Whilst out and about, we encourage the children to look at the print around them - in shops, posters, road names, signs, etc.
We have an extensive range of books in school including those from Read Write Inc, Oxford Reading Tree, and Big Cat Phonics.
