Reading at Home

In order to become a fluent reader, it is important that children have the opportunity to read aloud. Therefore we have set out expectations for each year group for the number of times a child is expected to read to an adult at home.


Upper KS2 Expectations


Year 5 – 5 times each week.

Year 6 – 6 times each week.


In Y5 children are expected to read five times per week and in Y6 children are expected to read  6 times per week.  It is really important that children read this amount of times as it helps them to become fluent and efficient readers. 


Children have a reading diary which is part of the communication between home and school.  This is used to document how many times a child has read during the week as well recording any other reading related issues.
