 Reading books will be changed  every two days if the pupil has read the book twice and adults have asked questions about the text. It is very important that children have a good understanding of the text. We read with the children on a daily basis through out the week so we are aware of their levels in reading and comprehension. Children will be assessed in their reading every term.
