It is really important that children read. There is such a wide expanse of reading materials available there is always an opportunity to get reading!
Each child has a book and a reading diary to bring home every night.
They need to bring their reading diary and book in every day. Please make the effort to listen to your child read ( At least 15 minutes each day ) and discuss the text and sign their reading record. It does make a difference to their reading !
Although I encourage children to read for pleasure, I also find sometimes children stick to a genre they know they like. Exposing children to other genres may open a whole new world of enjoyment for them.
We offer a wide range of books in our class library and the local library in town is free to join and borrow from. There are also some wonderful websites you can access such as love4reading, that will give you access to the opening chapters of the books and Top Marks that provides online activities.
If you are struggling for inspiration School reading list offers suggestions for each year group.
In the Summer term we will be launching a reading challenge, we are hoping to all read for 1000 minutes before the summer holidays We will record the progress.
Our two novels this half term are The Wizard of Oz and The Boy in the Girls' Bathroom
Happy reading !
