Key Information

Reading

Reading is an important aspect of the curriculum and is therefore given a very high profile in class. The children are encouraged to read daily in class and encouraged to read at home for 10 -15 minutes each night. We are extremely lucky in Year 3 to have many helpers who are willing to give up their time to listen to the children read. The children therefore have the opportunitity to read to an adult 2-3 times eac week. Reading books are changed regulary and this can be initiated by the children themseles or by the adult reading with them. I would encourage you to ask the children questions at home about the book they are reading to build the children's inference and comprehension skills. If you have any queries about your child's reading then please do not hesitate to contact me.
