Reading for Pleasure


We are having a big focus this year on all children in Year 6 reading for pleasure. As well as our Talk for Writing and class reader texts, we have made sure that there are exciting texts for children to read in class or at home for their own pleasure. We have recommended reads related to our Talk for Writing text 'Wonder,' ones that are relevant to our Geography topic and those that are recommended by Year 6 staff members.

Reading and Talk for Writing


For our first week back and in Year 6, we have been reading the picture book 'The Story Machine.' We used the text to aid our writing of poems and descriptions using figurative language. We listened to music to help our understanding of the emotions of the story, we had items in the classroom that are pictured in the text and we also responded through art.
