Reading is a big part of our learning in year 4.
Children will take part in reading activities each day at school, including a daily guided reading session. Here, they will learn the vital skills of decoding and comprehension needed to be successful readers. Each week, children will complete a variety of linked tasks including comprehensions, spelling challenges and Lexia.
Home Reading Books
Every child in year 4 will be issued a home reading book based on their current reading assessment. We ask that, once a book has been completed, an adult records this into the Reading Record and the book is returned to school. Books will be changed on an 'as and when' basis giving plenty of opportunity for lots of reading practise!
Each time your child has read for a period of 20 minutes, they will be awarded 500 miles in their Reading Miles passport. Once they have reached a key destination, they will receive a certificate in assembly in recognition of their hard work.
Lexia is a fantastic tool for supporting your child's reading. All children have an individual Lexia login and, in year 4, we expect children to log in to Lexia as part of their homework. We ask that the children complete at least 20 minutes per week. If you are unable to login at home, just let us know and time can be provided for your child to complete a Lexia session during school hours.
