Yr R Reading Page
It all starts with a book…
Every book opens a door to another world, where will the next book take us?
We have some wonderful reading areas in our classroom. We have a reading garden in our indoor classroom and a reading den in the outdoor classroom where we love to look at books on our own, with our friends, teachers or the cuddly reading buddies. Every week, Henrietta the hedgehog (a book loving hedgehog) delivers a book for us to read and enjoy throughout the week. We enjoy re-reading the book so we can join in, we act it out in the small world tray, we learn new words and develop our vocabulary and share fiction and non-fiction books related to the text.
Bertie the Bee also loves collecting and finding new rhymes and poems in our Reading Garden. We enjoy re-reading and joining in with them, exploring any new vocabulary and changing the words to create our own new rhymes and poems.
One child a week brings in their favourite book and poem/rhyme to share with the class and we take advantage of our school and town library with regular visits to refresh our class library.
The children also take a second book home which is a picture book that an adult can read to them. This may be fiction, non-fiction, poetry or one of the classes core texts. The choice lies with the child and they can change these as frequently as they wish.
