Now your child is in Key Stage two it is still important to hear your child read aloud to you most days. The most important thing to do is to ask them questions about what they have read  in order to check their understanding of the text.


In class your child will take part in reading/spelling activities daily during E.R.I.C. One of these activities will be a guided group reading session with the class teacher where we will be looking closely at a text, reading individually, answering questions and taking part in word studies about the book.

Target Readers

If we feel your child needs a little more support we will recommend that they become a target reader. This involves reading more often to an adult in school and to focus on answering questions about the book ther’re reading. We will ask parents of Target Readers to ensure they read a couple of pages regularly at home to an adult to increase their fluency and understanding

Our Trip to Tissington hall we were inspired by the Beauty and the Beast Theme.
