In KS2, the children build upon their reading and comprehension skills through whole class reading lessons. Each half term the class read a new text. Whilst reading the text, the teachers and children discuss the vocabulary, make predictions, explain what they know and why and find answers to questions within the text.
The children in KS2 use Accelerated Reader alongside whole class reading lessons. During Accelerated Reader, the children have the opportunity to read a text and then take a quiz about the text.
The children take the books that they have chosen for Accelerated Reader home for home reading.
As with children in EYFS and KS1, we ask that children in KS2 read at home daily.
If you have any questions about reading at school or at home, please ask your child’s class teacher and they will be more than happy to help.
