DD has started reception this year and goes just for mornings till christmas. She really enjoys it and gets on really well with her letters and words. Asks to do them everyday and trys to read other things to. We always read at least 2-3 stories each night with her as well.

Well the kids are all suppose to have books to take home and read and then read with teacher. DD hasn't had this yet and we were told they were waiting for new books so there would be a delay. Ok i'm fine with this. Well discussed it with a couple of mums before half term and agreed that we'd see what happened first week back after half term. So no book as yet and discussing it with one of the mums and another mum. 2nd mum says well my dd has had new books each week all term.

All of our dc's know their letters and can read basic words so am going to speak to teacher today about it but i'm peeved that some of the kids are being given books and some not!!

Sorry didn't mean to waffle on but just annoyed now.

Not worth getting annoyed about. If your dd is motivated and bright she will whizz through the books when she does get them.

I keep trying to stop the sodding things coming home. What the hell do infant school kids need homework for? What are they doing in school all day.

And man are Biff, Chip, Floppy, Wilf and all the rest dull as ditch-water. I hated reader scheme books as a kid, they were strictly to be got through as quick as possible before getting something more interesting.

Really don't worry about it - though I know it's hard. I remember stressing when a friend came to play with DS1 in Reception and he proudly showed me and DS1 his new reading book which was A LEVEL HIGHER THAN DS1's! By the end of the year DS1 was reading really well.

I used to think Biff et al were incredibly dull until my ds's latest reading scheme. Ginn readers make ORT seem like the Booker prize shortlist.

GrumpyYoungFogey, reading is not just for in school and they're only in school for a quarter of their day, 190 days a year. Many kids live in homes with no books.
