Throughout the year, the children explore a variety of novels. These provide many writing and drama opportunities.
This half term, Year 3 will be reading Hansel and Gretel by Anthony Browne.
In the second half term, Year 3 will be reading The Twits by Roald Dahl
During the first half term, Year 4 will be reading Stitch Head by Guy Bass.
Year 4 will read The Firework Maker's Daughter by Philip Pullman after the half term holiday.
Reading is a massively important skill that enables us to access so much and learn new things.
Children need to practise this skill as much as they can and we expect children to read to an adult every night at home. Their daily reading needs to be recorded in their reading record and signed by parents. Reading records are checked every day.
There are so many wonderful books to read. Click on the lists below to find a new book to enjoy.
Learning to spell is hugely important as well. We will be learning different spelling rules throughout the year. Your child could achieve a shiny spelling badge for each list of spellings they learn to spell.
