Reading

We would also like all children to read daily at home, either silently or to an adult. If you hear your child read, please encourage them to read fluently and with expression.

 

Whether your child is silently reading or you are hearing your child to read, we encourage you to ask them questions about their book to aid their understanding.

 

Your child has a Reading Record – Home School Book which they need to be filling in daily once they have read. This could be a note of what they have read and or what they thought about what they have read. If you hear them read we ask you to write and make a comment in this book. Your child will need to ensure they have this book in school every day.

 

Chn will be asked to either complete a mini question task or a vocabulary task. 

Additionally your child may be asked to read for their next guided reading session, this can be part of their reading time.
