Layla in Year 3 has been using pictures and beginning sounds to help herself work out unknown words in her reading book.
She is determined to work out the words on her own and only asks for help if she is stuck. She is very proud of being able to read many of the stories without much help.
Layla now enjoys stories and looks carefully when we choose a new book.
She recognises many of the tricky words, that she has learnt, within the text.
We play games to help her retain words learnt and to build her sight vocabulary.
