Our Weekly reading planning will generally be here at the beginning of each week. Due to changes in the programme we may not always read every book listed every week. Learning intentions are a guide as to what we may discuss, but this may change depending on students interests and needs during the reading session.

Students at this level will be reading with fluency and expression, and with a increasing bank of sight words will be able to read accurately, only applying decoding strategies when needed. Reading for meaning and developing comprehension become more important at this level, while it is important to maintain daily personal reading.

Students at this level generally read with an LA 2 times per week. There is a high expectation that students will read independently on other days.

Learning Area: 
To Do List: 
Use your reading strategies independently.

Identify concepts such as: setting, theme, plot.
What strategies have I used? Which strategy could I try to use next time?
