Your bug club account is now automated. When you have finished each book and completed the comprehension quizzes, you will automatically receive a new book. Please read the steps below to ensure your new books arrive in your 'My stuff' tab.
When using Bug Club, you may have noticed that on certain pages you will see a green bug. If you click on him, a question about what you have just read will appear! When you have answered the question, press the orange button to take you back to the book.
Once you're back on the page, you will know you have completed the quiz if the bug's eyes are closed. Once you have finished all the quizzes in the book, the book will show as 'completed'. This book will now move into My Library and a new book should be seen in My Stuff.
By answering the questions and completing the book, you will then earn reward coins to spent under the My Rewards tab where there are fun games and things to play.
We hope you continue to enjoy using this amazing resource.
The Reception Team
We have managed to get access to an online platform called ‘Active Learn’ which we are going to use to allocate children banded reading books at home. The books on this program are the same as the scheme of books that we use at school (Bug Club) and match the book bands that children have been using.
Each week, your child’s class teacher will set two books for your child to read to you at home. This will help your child to continue to develop their reading fluency at their current phonic level and also help teachers keep up to date with their reading progress. New books will be set once per week on the same day that work is uploaded to the school website.
We recommend reading each of the books a couple of times with your child to develop their fluency and asking them lots of questions about what they have read to ensure that they are comprehending their reading. Many of the books have suggested questions for you to use which may be helpful. The e-books also have a ‘read to me’ feature so that your child can have the book read to them. This feature is great for quick re-reading when answering comprehension questions but we would suggest that they read the book in its entirety first, before using this, so they can practise their decoding skills.
Teachers will initially be setting children books from the band they were on when we last saw them. We understand, however, that children’s reading can develop quickly so if you feel that the books set are too easy or difficult, please contact your child’s class teacher through the year group email address and we can look at adjusting the level.
