Reading is very important and you should read for at least 10 minutes every night.
Within the school day we teach specific Guided Reading sessions. Children will work with the class teacher at least once a week in their groups to read, comprehend and discuss a book or novel chosen for them. The children will be expected to read independently for the rest of the week as well as complete some question based tasks within their Guided Reading journals.
Children will also have a home reading book. Please read the books as regualrly as possible with your child. When you have finished your home reading book, please bring it into school any day to change it.
Children are not always listened to read on a 1:1 basis, unless we feel that extra reading is necessary. However, each child is listened to read once a week, during our guided reading sessions.
