Reading Record Ideas


In Year 5, we are keen readers. We love to read both fiction and non-fiction texts. We are developing our reading skills everyday. We need to read and respond at least three times a week in our Reading Journals.  

Check out the Reading Record Ideas below for helpful hints on the type of comments you can make and how parents can help with reading at home. 

What will you read next together?

Thank you for your ongoing support.  smiley

Lining Up

When the bell rings at 8.50 am the children line up on their class frog on the top playground in line order. At the end of the day at 3.15 pm the children once again line up on the frog and put their hand up when they see the adult collecting them and the teacher will dismiss them. In Year 5 children are allowed to walk home on their own but need written permission.
