I know what enthusiastic readers Year 6 are and I hope you maintain your love of reading throughout the year. Being able to hold your concentration while reading for 10 - 20 minutes is massively important for tackling your SATs papers. Reading every day will improve your reading fluency and expose you to knew and exciting vocabulary and writing ideas which will improve your own writing.

Reading a variety of texts, questioning their meaning and discussing aspects of the textwith someone else, will support your comprehension skills. Plus it's fun! 

Reading at home every night as homework is an expectation in year 6.

Please ensure that when your child does read at home, their reading record is signed to allow them to win their stickers. One last thing, if you can, try and discuss what your child is reading to support a deeper understanding of the text and encourage conversation around the authors choices. 

I appreciate your co-operation,

Mrs Ormerod
