Early Morning Reading
Please can you make sure your child's yellow reading diary and reading book are in school every day. Books are changed as required, short books daily and longer/chapter books when finished. Children start each school day with a ten minute silent reading session which gives them time to change their book and puts them in the right mind set for school. Our classroom door opens at 8.45 for this purpose.
Adult Led Reading
Every child reads to an adult in school over the course of each week either as a daily reader or as part of a guided reading group.
Our guided reading groups carusel consisted of four activities over the course of a week.
Guided Reading Activity Carusel:
Read with teacher - decoding text/comprehension questions
Comprehension - independent answering questions about a text.
Spelling - opportunity to practise the current weeks focus spellings.
Silent reading - developing silent reading skills
Every time your child reads with the teacher their yellow diary will be dated, have G.R. (Guided Reading) written in the text column and initialled. This can only be done if your child's yellow diary is in school.
