Reading and Spelling

Regular reading at home will continue to play a very important part in the children’s development and we appreciate your continued support in this area. There will be lots of opportunities for reading during the week as we share a variety of stories, poems and information books. The children will read with me once a week during Guided Reading sessions to practise and reinforce comprehension skills. The children’s reading stages will be assessed regularly and will take into account their comprehension of the text as well as their technical reading ability. Reading a range of high quality texts will positively influence the children’s writing, which will be purposefully linked to our topics throughout the year. 

Accelerated Reader

Children will continue to do AR quiz once they have finished reading their book and scores will be recorded in their Reading Records.
