Reading is the key to all success! If you can read, you can gain knowledge, understanding and enjoyment.
In Class 3, we expect you to read for at least 20 minutes everyday, so that you gain stamina and fluency, as well as the love of reading. Record your home reading in your reading diary daily to gain rewards in class.
As you progress throughout Year 3 and 4, you will move from stage books to becoming a free readers. This means that you will be able to choose the books you read. It is important that you use the recommended reading list below to help you to read a range of genres at the right level. You can also borrow non-fiction books from our school library and novels from your class library.
If you need to consolidate your word reading skills, vocabulary reading or fluency, your teacher will allocate a second reading book from our home reading scheme to support you. You can still have your own choice book to read for pleasure, but it is important to read the book allocated by your teacher regularly (it is recommended to read this a couple of times to improve your fluency and to change this weekly).
