We expect children in Year 5 to be reading regularly, both to themselves and to an adult. Children should have a reading book coming home with them each night. These will be accompanied by a reading record that must be signed regularly to show that adults have listened to the child read. This is part of their literacy homework. The children are taking part in Raving Readers and will be rewarded for the number of times they read to an adult at home.
Guided reading sessions will take place daily in Year 5 literacy lessons.
Reading homework is also set weekly on Reading Plus.
Our current class book is Room 13 by Robert Swindells
