In Year 3/4, we ask that the children read to an adult at least three times each week and record their endeavours in their Reading Record. The children should bring their reading books home each night and they should be brought back to school each morning.
If you're looking for other ideas, the World Book Day website (worldbookday.com) has lots of fun activities that are well worth looking at. In addition, the site also includes free audio-books, including full chapter books, that can be enjoyed by all the family.
The Book Trust website is also worth visiting (link below). Well-known authors and illustrators share fun activities for you and your family. There are also links to lots of children's authors who are reading or sharing their work in different ways.
In Guided Reading, we work in smaller groups where we alternate the activities we do each day. This allows us to work on specific skills within reading each day.
This term, some of the books the different groups will be reading can be seen below.
This term, we are reading Secrets of a Sun King written by Emma Carroll.
In English Writing, our learning journey this term is based on the books Ancient Egypt: Tales of Gods and Pharaohs written by Marcia Williams and The Orchard Book of Egyptian Gods and Pharaohs- written by Robert Swindells.
