Reading is REALLY important in our class. Children are expected to read at least 3 times per week at home to an adult.
Reading to someone else is different from reading to ourselves - we have to use expression, take notice of the
punctuation and understand what we're reading. There is a Reading League in the classroom. If a child reads 3 times in a
week to an adult at home and this is recorded in their Reading Record, their name moves up the chart. Every time a child
reaches World Cup Reader, they can choose a prize out of the treasure box.


On a Wednesday Morning Mrs Stephenson comes into our class to teach Geography. This term our topic is Rivers. 

Our other topics include:
History - Parliament
Science - Forces and magnets
