Gothic Mede Academy

Reading & Library


Our expectation is that children read each night and reading books should be in school every day. Your child will be heard reading in school in a variety of different ways: 1:1, Group Reading and during other classroom opportunities. You may find that your child likes to read similar books, or even the same book many times at home. Please record this in their Reading Record as well as telling me about their school reading book, as the children often discuss and recommend different books in class. Attached below is the Guide to Reading for Parents. This has lots of helpful questions that you might like to use to support your child's comprehension skills. By year 3 many children can read more or less fluently and need to develop more their comprehension and analysis skills. Reading just a page or two together but talking in depth about the text will be of great benefit to your child.


We are incredibly lucky this year to have a new library at Gothic Mede! Sycamore class will visit the Library on Tuesday afternoons with Mrs Anderson. The children may select one book each week to share with you at home. The children should bring their book back the following Tuesday morning in order for it to be changed.
