Reading in Derwent Class and at home.
We are continuing to a push with our reading in the summer term.
Every child reads in a Guided Reading Group once a week with Mrs Coote, Miss Oates or Mrs Collins.
They also have at least one individual read with a staff member and most children read at least once more with a volunteer.
We're also reading lots of non-fiction books about Egyptians, and enjoying some comics for a bit of lighter reading.
You can really help by listening to your child read their reading book regularly at home. Please record this reading in your child's planner: children with 3 or more home reads in a week get a merit on Friday and could be our Reader of the Week.
