Reading at Home
Reading in Y5
It’s important at this age that your child is encouraged to develop a love of reading. This will help to build a strong foundation for learning when they go to into Year 6, secondary school and for later life. Within class, children will read regularly, including through guided reading sessions, where the children build up their vocabulary, decoding, retrieving and inference skills, amongst others. The children are also given opportunities to read regularly throughout the school day. We recognise that reading is an important life skill, but we also wish our children to leave school with a real love of reading that will stay with them for life.
