Reading is fundamental to all children's education. In Upper Key Stage 2, we will be focusing on a range of key skills including information retrieval, summarising main ideas, drawing inferences, predicting what might happen next, word meaning and comparisons within and across texts. 

In addition to the reading that your child will engage in at school, they are expected to read at home at least four times a week and should record their reflection in their reading record. Although your child will be more independent with their reading, it is important that you engage in discussions about their reading and on a regular basis, still listen to them read. As a school, we celebrate and recognise how often your child reads using our 'Reading Around the Universe' initiative. 

Your child is responsible for changing their own book once they have completed it. Please work with us to encourage your child to choose books from a variety of genres and authors. 


NEW: Please see our 'useful websites' page for extensive recommended reading lists for 9-10 year olds!
