Rising Stars Reading Planet
We have signed up to an online reading scheme which allocates books to read based on their phonics knowledge. This allows children to apply the sounds that they know to recognise and decode words, building on fluency. Each child has their own log in details which gives them access to appropriate books that their class teacher has assigned. Please see the documents above with your child's log in details.
