Year 4 Curriculum

Reading in Lower KS2

In years 3 & 4, English is taught across the school week, in a range of ways.

Reading skills are focused on as a daily occurrence. Children have books to read at school and to take home to help develop both their reading and comprehension skills. There are reading record books which keep a log of books read at home and school, but also support the children with their word and sound knowledge.

Every day, children are also involved in reading activities outside of their daily English lessons. The focus for these is around the accelerated reader programme. When a child finishes a book, they complete an online quiz to assess their understanding of the book before they can move onto a new book. This helps the teacher and the child be confident that their skills are progressing. In addition to these independent activities, children take part in guided reading sessions with the class teacher weekly.
