Rising Stars Reading Planet

2020/21 Reading Planet Online Resource

Dear Parents/Guardians,

 At St Augustine’s we place great importance on the teaching of reading. With this in mind, we have invested in a new online reading scheme to complement the reading books that we send home. Today, you will have received an email from mailings@staugustines.dorset.sch.uk which contains a login for your child to access Rising Stars Reading Planet online books. If the email has not arrived in your inbox, please check your spam/junk folders. 

After half term, staff will be allocating books to your child that match the stage of phonics they are being taught (EYFS, Yr1 and Yr2) or the level at which they are reading with 95% accuracy. Every Friday, your child will be allocated one book to read online and when they have completed the read, they will be able to take part in a fun quiz to check their understanding of what they have read. Reading Planet will be in addition to the books that are sent home. In the event of a Lockdown, this scheme will enable children to continue having access to a range of books to read at home with you.

On Friday, we will send a ParentMail containing a parent guide on how to access your child's online reading book. You will also find this guide in your child's year group folder on the school website.

Kind regards

St Augustine's School Office
