Reading

Welcome back to our reading page 2018/19!

 

Find out what is happening around school by looking at our reading page.

If you have any ideas for anything else you would like to see then have a chat with Mrs Russell. 

Enjoy our page!

 

 

Have a look at our 'I can . . . ' sheets for each year group. You might find them interesting to look at, at home, and your parents may find them helpful to see what you are learning in school.

 

From reading the 'I can . . . ' statements, what do you think you are good at? What do you think you need to work on?

Friday 26th October

We had a fantastic end to our poetry week with our first ever Poetry Concert.

 

40 children from across school learned a poem and performed it in front of the whole school!

 

The Reception children learned a poem as a year group and gave a superb performance in front of everyone with super confidence and expression.

 

Everyone was incredibly impressed with all of the children and we had two performances chosen by our special guest, Eric Ferguson, who were awarded books.

 

It was so successful that you should watch this space in case we choose to have another! smiley

We had a fabulous performance poet in school today - Jim MacCool’s Interactive Poetry and Song Show - and he made us all smile from ear to ear! All of the children from Reception to Year 6 took part and enjoyed the rousing performance. This was a memorable part of our brilliant poetry week.

We have had  another poetry homework superstar today!

Two Year 4 superstars wrote poems about ‘diversity’ to enter into the Premier League Primary Stars Poetry competition. I think we could have some potential winners!

Thank you to all of the parents and family members who have popped into school this week to share poetry with their children. It has been great to see so many of you come into school and the children have loved it .

We have lots happening in school this week to celebrate poetry.

Already there have been children reading in the ‘Poetry Corner’ at lunchtime, sharing poems with each other and starting to learn them off by heart ready for our ‘Poetry Concert’ on Friday. What a super start to the week!

There were some super reading skills being practised in Year 4 today. They were scanning the text for key pieces of information and they were quick! If you want some super scanning top tips then Year 4 is the place to go!

What a busy day we have had today!

 

One of our Year 2 children has been inspired by his topic - Superheroes - and after all of the books they have read in class, he went home and created his own book with the help of his dad. Take a look, it’s super!

We had a Summer Reading Challenge and these children kept super records of all of their summer reading. Non-fiction, poetry, picture books, novels and newspapers were read and we have been dazzled by the enthusiastic comments and quantity of summer reading. Well done!

We also had some books donated to school today which will be seen in the playtime resources and in Mrs Russell’s office as she can’t resist reading ‘The Sleeping Army’ by Francesca Simon before anyone else!

We already have a Super Learner! Our super keen year 6 has been reading throughout the holidays and has come back to school with enthusiasm and brilliant reading skills. Mrs Preshous was dazzled today and is looking forward to seeing more from this talented young man - keep it up!

Classes have great plans for class readers this term. They are displayed around school and have a little look below at what you will see. Have a chat with other children and ask about their reading and if they would recommend their book. 😀

 

Can you work out which book is for which year group?
