CYCLE B - 2023
This half-term, Class 4 are reading Letters from the Lighthouse for their Class Read. This is a beautiful story written by Emma Carroll. The children will be able to create lots of different genres of writing including: diaries, newspaper reports, postcards, ship's log, character descriptions and setting descriptions which link to their hostort topic of WWII..
We are very excited about becoming reading buddies to the children in Class 3. They come to us 2 x weekly and we hear them read. Year 6 have to be excellent reading role models!
These are some of the comments from the Year 6 children after just 3 sessions!
- I love the excited looks on their faces when they come in and jump up and down shouting, “Come on, Come on, let’s read!” It’s magical.
- P is learning lots of new words and new literacy skills such as apostrophes.
- I love listening to them read. I love helping them when they struggle with words.
- I love hearing Class 3 read and I think we should keep doing it.
- I love helping them learn new words.
- I feel like Year 1 and 2 phonics are flooding back to me!
- I love listening to them read. They are little Angels whilst they read.
- I love listening and helping the younger children read.
- I like hearing children read their reading books because it makes me laugh. I love it when they try to repeat what we are teaching them. L
