Book Talk in Year 2

In Book Talk in Year 2, we have been reading 'Harry the Poisonous Centipede' by Lynne Reid Banks. We have been practising skills of retrieval, inference, prediction and sequencing. We have also been learning lots of new vocabulary and reading with fluency and expression.

Year 4 Book Talk: Mez's Magic

Nursery LOVE to read!

Children spent some time looking at different books. Children all sat in a circle and some children even shared the book they were reading with another friend! Children in nursery love to read different books! We love that they love to read and love books!

I read... What's your superpower?

In Year 2, we love exploring books and using our imaginations. We regularly explore vocabulary and practise our skills of inference and retrieval in our daily 'Book Talk' sessions. 

We love to be reading teachers in Year 1!

Nursery children enjoy 'Reading for Pleasure'. We visit our beautiful school Library each week and choose books to take home and share with our families and enjoy choosing to read in class. Our children enjoy exploring their interests and fascinations through books and love the independence it gives them.

Reading Club - Children from Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 have been having such a great time at Reading club with Miss May. Children are able to choose from a wide variety of books and relax and read. Children love to hear a story chosen by themselves at the end of the club alongside sharing information about the books they have read!

Year 3 enjoyed exploring the different genres of books within our library!

Nursery are reading, reading reading! We have enjoyed our topic linked class readers this half term including The Little Scarecrow Boy, The Bear Snores On, Pumpkin Soup and The Gruffalo. Key vocabulary is taught with every text and children enjoy acting the story out using this new vocabulary. In Nursery we read everywhere and always, at all times!

Nursery children are doing very well exploring lot's of new story linked vocabulary.
