Free Reading

Good morning everybody!

I hope you are all well and remembering the discussions that we had in school last week around ‘social distancing’.

Below is a link to a selection of free Audiobooks that you can listen to whilst you are not in school. Simply copy and paste it into your browser and select the book you would like to listen to.


Stay safe!

Blending for Reading!

Every week Reception Class learn a new set of phonemes (sounds) to help them read and write new words. This video shows how we teach the children to read new words using the sounds of the week.

  1. touch the letter with your finger
  2. say the sound the letter makes
  3. blend the sounds together to read the word

Please continue to help your child practise the words that are being sent home each week. Thank you for your continued support!

Year 1 – Reading Raffle

In year one we celebrate reading at home with a raffle.
Each time your child reads at home and has their reading record signed they receive a raffle ticket.

At the end of the week 3 children are picked and have the chance to go in the star box. All tickets remain in the jar and at the end of the half term 1 ticket is chosen to win a book.

We are very excited to find out who our first winners will be.

Here are some helpful tips to support reading at home:
Let your child select the book. (it doesn’t always have to be their reading book
Discuss the cover, the author/ illustrator.
Look through the book together and talk about the pictures
Take turns to read.

Thank you for your continued support,
Miss Briggs


Year 2 Class Assembly

Reception Visit to Wibsey Library

Year 5 World Book Day 2017

We started the morning by everyone in class explaining who they were dressed as and what their favourite book is.

Here are some examples.

Miss Charles: “Guess how much I love you is my favourite children’s book because it has really lovely illustrations and the words have a really emotional meaning.”

Rajveer: “Mine is Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban because is it really interesting and descriptive!”

Bailey: “I like the World War 2 non-fiction book because it has interesting facts and photographs.”

Renae: “Mine is Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban because you find out that it is not Sirius Black that told Voldermort where his parents were!”

Kiedis: “Mine is Minecraft Annual 2016 because I really like Minecraft.”

We then played a game of guess the character, made a bookmark and made our own book.

Great morning Year 5, well done everyone.
