As discussed in the recent Reading Workshop it is essential that your child is reading on a daily basis. At Netherthorpe Primary we have a love of reading and know that reading is fundamental to children's progress at school.


Your child will have 3 books per week

uSongbirds Book – This is a phonically decodable book which your child should be able to read to you. It is linked to the phonics they are currently learning.  They have a green label on them to make them easier to recognise. These books will be changed weekly – the day will vary depending on your child’s guided reading group.
uComprehension Book – This is a book to share with your child. They should be able to read most of the book but may need support. These books have a yellow label on them to make them easier to recognise. These are changed every Wednesday.


uLibrary Book – To be read to your child. This is a story book aimed at improving their vocabulary and to encourage a love of reading. These are available to change on Wednesday mornings – please pick a book with your child to read at home together.

Your child will also be allocated books on Bugclub which are books that are available to read online. Again this are phonically decodable books.

To login into Bugclub at home you will need a username and password. Your child has a bookmark with their login details on. You will also need to enter the School code: skxw. Please ask Miss Perkins or Mrs Flannery if you need any help.
