Year 5 Pawsome Reading Bookmark (click to view/download)

Your child will receive a Year 5 pawsome reading bookmark from school at the beginning of the school year. The characters on the bookmark are linked to the reading skills that we teach in school and will help you to support your child's reading at home. Please use this frequently when reading at home with your child.

Talk for Writing Story Maps & Model Texts

Story maps are used to help children retell the model text that is used in our Talk for Writing lessons. Use the story maps (pictures and words) below to help your child practise the model text at home. If they need support to remember the words, you can view and use the accompanying model text (words only). There are actions that accompany the text that the pupils will learn in school. The more that children internalise the vocabulary and sentence structures from our model texts, the better equipped they are for creating their own stories. And practising is fun - so please have a go with your child at home!
