At Silver Springs we encourage our children to immerse themselves in reading every day.


In Year 3, your child is encouraged to read at home each night. This can be from their school reading book, which is tailored to their current reading fluency and comprehension level, a beloved book from home, a graphic novel, some poetry or even the TV guide! We know that reading with your child at home, even for 5 minutes each day, will give them further fluency practise and will reinforce the fundamental skills of reading. 


School reading books are changed on an 'as and when' basis. As soon as your child has finished reading their book, note this in their reading record, send it into school with them and it will be changed once they have deposited it into the reading record box.


Your child will be supported to read daily within school time and will be heard reading by an in-school adult at least once a week.


We also focus on reading during our weekly Guided Reading sessions. Children work 1:1, in pairs or in small groups to read targeted texts, refining their decoding, vocabulary, fluency and comprehension.
