At BHJS, we encourage children to read a range of fiction genre and also explore a range of non-fiction texts both in and out of school. Regular reading in this way will significantly improve children’s ideas for writing, understanding of language/sentence structure and develop maturity in their writing style… leading to fabulous progress.
- Each week, children should aim to read 5 times, which should be recorded in the back of their home learning books.
For Year 3/4, 1 read = 15mins
For Year 5/6, 1 read = 20 mins
- Reading should be with an adult whenever possible although independent reading still counts towards the weekly total.
- The children’s reading will be celebrated weekly on their class reading challenge.
- Two raffle tickets will be awarded for reading 5 times or more.
Please find below book lists for Year 3/4 and Year 5/6 to help in selecting age appropriate books for home. If you would like any extra guidance, please speak to your child’s class teacher.
