We love to read in Year 3. We do regular guided reading sessions each week where we look at a range of fiction and non-fiction texts that link to our topic work.
In order to support your child with their reading, please encourage your child to read at home every night. They should be bringing their reading book home from school every day. Please sign the reading record to say that you have listened to them read their school reading book five times.
