Guided Reading

During the afternoon sessions, children work in small groups as part of the Guided Reading session. This session lasts around 25 minutes and is made up of a carousel of activities. One group will be reading a text with the class teacher and developing their reading skills (Please see the reading assessment focus booklet). Another group will be completing a follow up task linked either to the text they have read with the class teacher or a comprehension text to test their reading skills. The other activities include a spelling activity, book corner time and a SPAG activity. The SPAG activity is a spelling, punctuation or grammar task.

The Wimborne Junior School Reading Pledge!

Shortly before half term, we launched our Reading Pledge at Wimborne Junior School. This pledge is a contract between the school, the child and the parent. Our goal is that every child we leave our school not just fluent at reading but able to have a deeper understanding of what they have read.  We expect that every child will read at least three times a week at home.

If you have not received a copy, please contact your child's class teacher.
