Reading

                                       

 

Dear Children,

 

Well done for your fantastic daily reading!....oops, are you reading daily, including bedtimes?

 

Before you start today's Reading activity, I'll like you to think about how many books you've read so far and how many reviews you've written. Which books would you recommend to your friends and teachers to read?

 

We'll like you to send pictures of your reviews to Mrs Coffie -ecoffie@gascoigne.co.uk, so we can celebrate your effort.

 

Every Friday, we'll celebrate Reading Champions of the week. So, please remember to write reviews about the books you've enjoyed reading. You do not have to print the Reading review template for your review, try and create your own using the prompts on the template; then, ask your adult to take a picture and email to Mrs Coffie.

 

Now, are you ready for another day of exciting reading?  

 

Please log into BUG CLUB ACTIVELEARN PRIMARY by clicking on the link below:

Read your available BUG CLUB BOOK and answer the comprehension questions.

 

 

Remember to use your reading skills:

 

  • Fred Talk unfamiliar words. E.g- f-r-o-g
  • Slide the syllables together. E.g fr og becomes frog.
  • Chunk new words before putting them together to read. E.g book-let becomes booklet
  • Refer to the illustrations (pictures) for clues
  • Use the Read to me function to listen to the pronunciation of difficult words.
  • Re-read words and sentences you’re unsure of to grasp the meaning.
  • Most of all, write down new vocabulary and search for their meaning in dictionaries.
  • Now answer all the comprehension questions (quiz questions). This will help you to interpret the meaning of what you have read and also to practise your decoding skills.  
  • You can write a review about your book and share with us.

   Don't forget to email us if you need help.
