Reading

Children read on a regular basis in Class 5.  We have a daily story time session, which is an opportunity to share a book together, ask questions about the text and talk about the book and related topics.  Reading books are taken home and changed on a weekly basis.  We encourage children to read at home 4 times a week, practice reading tricky words and use their phonics to decode unfamiliar words.
