Reading

Reading will be a big focus in the Spring term.  In year six, the children have reciprocal reading sessions.  Typically lasting between forty minutes and one hour, the sessions address one particular type of question each lesson.  The text types link either to the literacy or topic.  

In addition, the children have reading groups which they sit in during small, focus groups with teaching staff.  Some children may also have interventions (Dockside, Inference training or small group sessions with Mrs. Pacsuta Davies).

Children are expected to read every day and be able to talk about what they have read.  They should be reading 90 words per minute on a range of age-related texts.
