The children are thoroughly enjoying our new Rainbow Reading Scheme! In Year 2 we have a whole library of books for the children to choose from. These books include classics, popular fiction, non-fiction books, poetry, magazines and newspapers – so hopefully something for everyone! When the children complete a book, they should be prepared to answer some simple questions about it.
As the children finish a book, we will fill the book in on their ‘Rainbow Reading’ chart. As they complete more books, they move through the rainbow colours eventually reaching the top colour (red). Along the way, children will achieve stickers and badges to congratulate them on their movement to the next rainbow colour.
We are enjoying whole class guided reading in Year 2. Class 5 are currently reading Esio Trot and Class 6 are reading The BFG. We are really enjoying Roald Dahl!
