Gothic Mede Academy

Reading & Library


In school, we hear children read individually, during whole class, daily guided-reading and during daily classroom opportunities. We also have quiet reading times for the children to practise their reading. Please could you support your child by listening to them read each evening and discussing their books with them. Even 5 minutes reading on a regular basis will make a huge difference to your child’s understanding, fluency and enjoyment of reading. Could an adult please write in your child’s reading record when you have heard them read and let us know of any issues/successes your child has with their books. Please could reading books and reading records come back to school each day.


On Monday afternoon, every other week, Birch class visit our school library. The children choose a book to take home for two weeks. Please could the book come back to school on the following Monday so that your child can choose a new one.
