Star Writing Award winner for October 2017:
We are working hard to improve our reading in Year 4. We will be joining Biff, Chip, Kipper, Floppy and their friends on their adventures with the Magic Key, as our weekly books will be from the Oxford Reading Tree scheme. In class we will be making time for modelled, shared, guided and independent reading sessions so as to fully understand how to use our different reading strategies. We will also be working on our comprehension skills by using Bloom's Taxonomy in class to answer questions about the texts.
This year we will be starting Accelerated Reading. We took our Star Reading Tests, and from this we have learnt the level of the books we will begin reading independently. With every book we will take a short test on our iPads, and we will be able to move up levels as time goes on. Children can read at certain times during the day, and will work to change their books independently. Our goal is to become Word Millionaires!
