At Thomlinson Junior School, we use Accelerated Reader to help monitor the progress the children make in their reading, ensure they are reading books that are suitable for their reading level and encourage them to read, both at school and at home.
We have daily reading in each class everyday where children read independently or with an adult. All classes also have one whole class guided reading lesson each week, where they look at a class novel or extract in greater detail.
We ask that, in order to fully support your child with their reading, they read at home at least three times a week – either with an adult or independently. It is useful if you encourage your child to note down what they have read in their Reading Records and they are signed by an adult, again at least three times a week.
