Year 5 News
On Friday afternoons, Woodpecker class have been doing some shared reading - reading with a partner. Here are some of the things we like about shared reading:
“I like reading books together because if you’re reading a funny book you both laugh and it’s really funny” Ian
”It is nice because if your partner is reading a book and it doesn’t look very interesting, they can read some to you and you might end up finding it interesting.” Teagan
”I really like shared reading because you get to learn about what other people like to read, not just yourself.” Joshua
”I like shared reading because you can listen to what other people are reading - you might end up wanting to get that book.” Sophie
”I like shared reading because you don’t just find out what you like you also find out what your partner likes reading, then if they are stuck on a book choice you can give them recommendations.” Amelia
”It’s good to do partner reading because if your partner has a different book to you you can try it and it might give you new ideas of books to read.” Ellis
”I like shared reading because I like it when your partner has an interesting book and you get to hear what it is about.” Megan
”I like shared reading because every week you get to sit next to another person and you might not have heard them read before. If they have a good book that you haven’t read before you could read it.” Aaron
