Home Reading Practice

It is important for your child to become an experienced reader of a wide range of fiction and non-fiction texts.

While popular books, such as ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid’, ‘Dork Diaries’ and ‘Flower Fairy’ series are relaxing and easy to read, we encourage our pupils to choose more demanding books for their daily home-reading tasks.They need to build up their reading stamina in order to tackle the harder texts they need to analyse in Years 5 and 6.

There are some beautiful stories here    BBC i-player
