Welcome toBilton Infant School‘Be the best we can be’


Reading at home

  • One way in which children get better at reading is through lots of practice
  • By hearing children read at home, you can help them practise and improve
  • It is the teachers’ responsibility to teach reading, but your assistance will mean that you can work together to help children become better readers
  • We provide reading books for children which match their needs. These books are used to practice and apply their new knowledge and skills and will be books children can read at least 90% of, confidently, fluently and independently
  • We recommend they read their reading book at home at least three times per week
  • Children benefit from having adults read story and information books to them to encourage a shared reading experience, a love of books and an opportunity to broaden their language skills.  We would encourage children to share these books at least twice a week
