Reading and Phonics Home-School Partnership
In Plymouth class, the children will be heard read at least once every two weeks by an adult. Some children will be heard read weekly. When your child reads with an adult at school, this will be recorded in their reading record with either a comment by an adult about explicit reading skills or a comprehension question and answer by your child. This will be recorded in your child's reading book with an 'I have read with an adult today' stamp.
All children will have the opportunity to change their reading book on Monday afternoons but also throughout the week if they have finished reading their book. Please read with your child daily and get your child to answer a question (using the 4 grid question stems found on the inside cover of their reading record) about what they have read into their reading record.
Children will also have a library book which will be changed on Monday afternoons. This book is one that has been chosen to read for enjoyment which, as discussed at the parent reading workshop (slides can be found under the parent workshops section) you might read to your child
Please ensure that your child learns their weekly spellings, as this is linked to the year 4 spelling rules. The weekly spellings will be found stuck into their reading records.
Reading books and reading record books should be kept in your child's bag so that we can have them in the class every day and update them when needed.
