Reading

In Key Stage 2, we explore nine key aspects of reading in order for children to enable children to fully engage with a text.

 

The domains we cover: enjoy, decode, define, predict, retrieve, summarise and sequence, infer, compare and explore.

Please read the attached document to find out more about how to support your children in each area.

 Click here: Reading Domains - aspects of reading explained 

 

Recommended Reads:

 If you're looking for inspiration for books to share with your Year Five children, please take a look at the following links:

 There is also a 'Brilliant Books' list recommended for Year Six.

Please note: some of these texts are meant for the more mature reader. We would advise you to read an online synopsis of each book before purchasing or borrowing to ensure that you are happy for your child to child to read it. If your child would like to discuss any of the themes within these books, they are very welcome to speak to a member of the Upper Key Stage Two team. 


At Woodheys we want to share as much as possible with parents and with this new app we hope to keep you up to date with your child’ learning.

  • Turn on notifications and you can see what is happening in the classroom as it is happening!

  • If you have more than one child - no problem!! You can subscribe to as may Woodheys channels as you want. 

  • You will receive regular posts each week on some of the exciting events and learning that take place at Woodheys. This will replace the year group pages on the website.

Learning Resources

 

Here are a few suggested learning resources that the children can access at home:

 

Maths

An online version of the numbers game from Countdown. There is no timer so the children can practise using their number knowledge in a fun way.

A great resource which can help to improve the speed of calculations and knowledge of their times tables.

This is a great resource for recapping your mathematical knowledge. Mr Brett's favourite page is the puzzle page.

This website is particularly good for checking mathematical processes as it contains a large number of video explanations and examples.

A fantastic resource for practising techniques used in the SATs arithmetic paper.
