‘Together for Excellence’



Oxford Reading Buddy has acknowledged the problems that they have had and released a Beta version that is currently free to all.  You should be able to access it and read their books and complete the quizzes.  It might add a new dimension to your reading experience!

All children have made fantastic progress this half term with their phonics and will be moving to new groups after half term.  Well done, and thank you for all your support at home.

There will be a Guided Reading group beginning when we come back, with an emphasis on comprehension.  When you read at home, do make sure that you make time to talk about what you have read as this will support your understanding.  Now that many of you can read with increasing fluency, it is time to really focus on what we are reading.


Some key questions you could discuss - 

Who was the main character?

Why did that character do/say that?

How did the story begin/end?  What made that happen?

How did you feel about the characters?  What made you feel that way?

Were there any new words in the text?  Can you look them up or work out their meaning from their use in the text?
