In Year Five, children are expected to read at home every day! (Of course, they will also be reading every day at school!) Even though some of the children may no longer think they need your help, your monitoring of their reading and comprehension at home are crucial to their progress. Shared reading and discussion of texts are always helpful for children's learning. Please encourage your child to read with expression and to express opinions about what they are reading!
Please see the Reading Spine document below to find out what we will be reading over the course of the year. As well as giving you an insight into our reading at school, it should provide some inspiration if you are struggling to find a book for your child to read at home! Please contact Mr T on Class Dojo if you would like any more advice or support with your child's reading. (I always love talking about books!) The Lexia and Bug Club websites are also both excellent resources for boosting reading that we use regularly at school:
