Whole Class Reading
Children will take part in reading activities each day at school, with a minimum of a 1 hour whole class reading session per week. Here, they will learn the vital skills of decoding and comprehension needed to be successful readers, we will focus closely on the Reading Gems covering different skills across the year.
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!
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 60 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.
