Star Readers on Friday 17th November 2017

Children around school this week have been discussing difficult texts and explaining key ideas, often asking questions and not waiting to be asked by a member of staff, which shows we are really developing our comprehension skills. Staff have been particularly impressed with our children’s perseverance.

Week Ending Friday 20th October

We have had a marvellous week of reading in school this week. On top of some excellent dedication and attitudes towards reading, we have had a massively successful Book Fair in school, the success of which will allow us to buy even more book new books for our children. Thank you to everyone involved in selling and buying books in school this week.
This week we have been impressed by readers who have supported their peers to improve their reading, readers who have recognised the importance of reading daily and who have taken a real responsibility for their reading progress. Some readers this week have improved their fluency, developed a meaningful understanding of challenging texts, expressed thoughts, feelings and opinions about a text and generally read with much enthusiasm. Shyla in 3KH even performed her favourite poem to her teacher at Parent’s Evening- how wonderful!
Here are our Star Readers this week:
