Reading at home
How to comment in reading diaries
Attitude and interest
In our classrooms you may see books wrapped in brown paper, these are our Mystery reader books, the children have clues but can't see inside! These are the books we read to the children at the end of every day. The idea behind wrapping them up is to build anticipation and make reading exciting! These books are often books which are pitched beyond the children's limitations, in Year 2 for example we may read Matilda or Harry Potter, this exposes our children to higher level vocabulary, and allows them to access complex sentence structures which they may not see in their own reading books. We LOVE it!
