St John The Baptist Primary School
Year 3 Reading Evening
reading is managed in Year 3 and how/why
this differs from Key Stage 1.
Why do we read?
…to gain information….
…. for escapism
……as part of our work.
Children learn to read…
To increase their knowledge
To spark their imagination
To discover new worlds
To be inspired
To empathise with characters
To relax and unwind
for the same reasons.
With our developed reading skills we can make books…
by reading endlessly to our children…
and introducing them to a wide variety of texts. Our enthusiasm for certain authors and styles of books can be infectious!
Also, this can encourage a thirst for knowledge and understanding of the world.

‘READING TO LEARN.’
Fine balance to be struck in terms of providing continuing support and nurturing a move towards more independent reading.
Your answer may well be that he/she shifts from one to the other!
Model reading out loud to them regularly
Let your child see you reading for pleasure
Use Book talk – short focused activities
Choose a visual text without words to encourage independent thought and creative responses. This is a useful way in for more reluctant readers.
