During the partial school closure, we will be using a range of resources and strategies to support your child’s reading whilst they learn at home. Reading will be a focus for one of your child’s weekly English lessons but there will be other planned activities across the curriculum, that will also support your child’s development in reading.
We recommend hearing children read on a regular basis and share books with them, as often as possible – reading to and with them. A range of reading material can be used to teach or provide opportunities for your child to apply and practise their reading skills, including newspapers, magazines, online text, labels, dictionaries and manuals.
We are using Oxford Owl to support pupils learning and practising reading at home. Please check with your child’s class teacher or the school office, for your child’s log-in to the eBook library.
There are three stories to read including:
- Charlotte and Harry’s Big Adventure by Reception, Year 1 and Year 2
- The Lonely Jellyfish by Year 3 and 4
- Under My Bed by Year 5 and 6
We hope you enjoy reading the stories!
If your child enjoys Harry Potter, learning through a Harry Potter inspired curriculum will motivate and interest them.
