Weekly Overview

Reading Focus

Children who read regularly achieve better throughout their school lives. Reading has many benefits including concentration, language skills and a boost to creativity and imagination. In Year 5, we regularly promote the importance of reading.


There is a daily session where we read to the children. Our current text is Treasure Island Robert Louis Stevenson. In addition to this, there are VIPERS (Guided Reading) lessons every day to help improve fluency, comprehension and other vital skills


How can you help?

Each child has their own reading record. We expect the children to read for 20 minutes every day and that this is signed off by a parent in their reading record. We understand that there are many things that can make this difficult, however reading is the most fundamental way to support your child's learning. If there is an evening where you are unable to read with your child, please strongly encourage them to read independently and sign their diary to show that they have done this.
