Additional Resources for Upper Junior Children
Attached at the base of this page are some the additional generic activities that were already for parents and carers to do with their children in Upper Junior Classes.
Reading at Home
We have provided the children in the Infants and those in the Juniors on the reading scheme with additional reading books to take home, however we appreciate that children will finish these as part of their daily reading routine.
For children who are using the school reading scheme you’ll already be familiar with which colour band your child is reading within. We would recommend signing up for a free account on www.OxfordOwl.co.uk where you will be able to access a wide range of texts to read for free online which are organised into age range, level and genre.
We would ask that you read within the colour band that your child is currently on, with a focus on discussing the text and asking a range of questions to assess your child’s understanding of the text. Question prompts have been provided in the home learning packs to support you with this.
There are also a number of authors who will be reading their stories online each day, including Oliver Jeffers who has already started to share his collection of videos on his website: www.oliverjeffers.com
If your child has been assessed at school as being a free reader, then we would ask that you support them in reading a range of text types, including fiction, non-fiction, poetry, magazines, comics and newspapers. You can also find suggestions of recommended reads for individual year groups at www.schoolreadinglist.co.uk
