Gruffalo’s Child


We are going to start the school year with some fantastic tips to keep children and parents reading together, children in Unit 1 and Unit 2 greatly benefit from daily reading and enjoy this special time which they will get your undivided attention.

Below are some top tips to make this enjoyable:-

Unit 3 and 4

When children enter into KS2 they have acquired the important skills of blending and reading fluently. Children need to continue to use these skills, however we would like children to further develop comprehension skills. It is essential that the children are exposed to challenging vocabulary and books that contain unfamiliar contexts. Questions to support comprehension can be found in the back of school reading books.


Celebrating Authors

On the 13th September children across the school will celebrate a Roald Dahl and work from this will be displayed across school, why don’t you share your favourite Roald Dahl book with your child?

If you require further help with your child’s reading please speak to the class teacher or to our Reading Champion, Mrs Bollington.
