Log your reading on Go Read to earn house points


All children should be reading their school reading-scheme book for at least 15 minutes per day, five days per week. To encourage children to develop a love for reading, they should also be encouraged to read their own reading book, either from home or school. This book should be a book that they enjoy, but, ideally, one that that also challenges them. Children are encouraged to read a wide range of genres and authors. Finally, children should check the meaning of unfamiliar words in the books they are reading, They can do this in a dictionary, online or by asking an adult. 


Reading, including any new vocabulary the children have come across, should be logged on Go-Read each day. In Year 5, children should be able to log their own reading. Parents are still encouraged to read with their children as often as possible and to ask questions of them, as well as just listening to them read aloud. It would be appreciated if parents could log these sessions and any questions they have asked on Go-Read in the same way they used to do this in the old reading records. 



Following a discussion with the Year 6 teachers, we are now going to resume learning new words from the Year 5/6 Orange Words list, which you will then recap in Year 6. This week, we are learning the final 10 orange words. There will be a spelling test on all of the Year 5/6 Orange words in the final week. 


This week's spelling words are: suggest, symbol, system, temperature, thorough, twelfth, variety, vegetable, vehicle, yacht.  


You should also have your own spellings from words to log and learn that you will need to focus on. 


Children who attend Mrs Questa's group should only learn the second set of spellings (the unhighlighted ones) as well as any spellings issues by Mrs Questa. 


Please remember that spelling words can be tested with prefixes or suffixes added. 


The highlighted words are Orange Words and are taken from the statutory spelling list for Year 5/6. Spellings will be tested on Fridays. 


Definitions of words that you don't know the meaning of should be checked in a dictionary or online.
