Today we read with our mini buddies. Our big buddies were busy and so we headed over to the new Reception class to read with them. It was a great chance for us to be the ‘older’ person who reads to the younger children. We needed to model lots of different reading strategies, for example – pointing to the words as we read, sounding out long words, reading sight words fluently, looking at the pictures and connecting them to the words we read, reading from left to right and top to bottom on the page and discussing what the story was about when we finished reading it. You can see us showing the Receptions some of these reading skills.

What are some of the reading strategies you use?
We’d love to hear about some different books that we could read to our ‘Mini Buddies’.
