Supporting Your Child's Learning


From September 2014, the National Curriculum has been much more demanding and that expectations in all areas of learning have risen, with learning objectives being taught approximately two years earlier than previously. 

To assist you in supporting your child, the following expectations are in place for home reading in our school:

  • Year 3 children read 3 times a week for a duration of 20 minutes each time
  • Year 4 children read 4 times a week for a duration of 20 minutes each time
  • Year 5 children read 4 times a week for a duration of 30 minutes each time
  • Year 6 children read 4 times a week for a duration of 40 minutes each time 

Each year group runs a termly reading race and those children who read the required amount each week at home, and have their reading records signed, are invited to a year group reading treat at the end of the term to say a huge well done for meeting our reading expectations. 

A list of suitable reads that have been recognised by the Centre of Literacy for Primary Education, as high quality texts that are age appropriate for children in Years 3 & 4 and Years 5 & 6, are also available for you view/download. 

Please do encourage your child to sample books by a range of authors and if your child has tried all the books on the Year 3 and 4 suggested reads list, encourage him/her to delve into the books on the Year 5 and 6 list, if appropriate. 

Similarly, if your child knows all of the spellings listed in the Year 3 and 4 spelling document available to view/download, then please do feel free to challenge your child with the spellings from the Year 5 and 6 document. 

The National Curriculum times tables expectation is that pupils are secure in all tables, up to 12 x 12, by the end of Year 4. From September 2018, all pupils will be tested at the end of Year 4 on their tables knowledge using a computer based assessment provided by the Standards and Testing Authority (STA).
