Reading in Year 2
At St Paul's we love reading! Our goal is to instil a life-long love for reading and we want our children to take pleasure in all that reading can bring. Reading at St Paul's is designed to develop and enable ALL children to reach their full potential. We aim for our children to leave school as confident and fluent readers.
We introduce children to a variety of literature through structured guided reading lessons, storytime, links with the local library, celebrating world book day and books are used as a stimulus for learning in other areas of the curriculum.
We know how important it is to hear children read. Our reading sessions are designed so that each child can read and discuss a book with the teacher and class teaching assistant. Children will also have opportunities to read with a reading volunteer where possible.
We value the contributions parents and carers make to the teaching of reading. Each child has a reading record which parents/carers and teachers complete. This record is a means of communicating about your child’s reading.
Your child needs to bring their home reading book, planner and book bag into school each day.
Home reading books are changed twice a week.
What will we be learning this term?
Our learning is centred around the book entitled 'The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch'. The children have enjoyed reading this fictional text in class and have made a great start in their writing tasks linked to the story, characters and setting.
Here is our Knowledge Organiser. It maps out your child's learning through topic based activities this term:
