Where possible, English content will be linked to our learning quest to develop the children's understanding of each topic. Over the year, we will cover a range of genres as well as spelling, punctuation and grammar rules.
Reading for at least 15 minutes a day has been shown to support the development of children's vocabulary which they can then apply to new texts. Therefore, each child should have a reading book and reading journal to track their progress in. Your child does not need to read aloud to you unless we speak to you personally or if you or your child would like to. If you would like to get involved with your child's reading development, I would suggest asking questions to develop children's comprehension (understanding of the text) skills.
