Reading in Year 4:
At Banks Road, reading is our whole school priority and it is important for children in Year 4 to be exposed to a variety of genres and words to promote reading development and understanding.
Each week children in Year 4 will complete one to one reading with an adult, shared reading and guided reading lessons. They also will be following Read to Write which helps children use all their acquired knowledge in Reading and apply it to their writing.
We want children to read for pleasure!
Homework: Please read with your child daily, encourage reading for pleasure and access Reading Plus regularly to help develop your child’s reading.
