Reading groups are underway!

Wednesday 23 November 2022

Year 5/6 are well and truly in the swing of our new reading groups!

Each group had the choice to choose a book to read over the half-term. In their reading groups, pupils had to work together by choosing a few books and discussing them in detail. Reading blurbs, discussing authors and choosing which road to go down (fiction vs non-fiction) really helped the pupils come to their final decisions.

Here are our four group books for this half-term:

Wishful Thinking by Ali Sparkes

Room 13 by Robert Swindell

Podkin One-Ear by Kieran Larwood

Here Be Monsters! by Alan Snow

Every Friday, during our Book Club session, pupils are expected to have read to their target page through the course of the week. These target pages are agreed within each reading group, facilitated by the teacher. Pupils are also expected to bring in their reading records, that need to be signed by an adult, each week. There may also be a reading task for your child to do – this will be written in their reading record each week.

Here are lots of happy faces with their new reading books!
