Reading Expectations

What will I read in Year 5?


You will still choose a reading book (Children should be reading at dark blue or dark red level and accessing Project X Level 15 or 16) and a library book. Make sure you tell Mrs Deakin or Miss Burgessl when you are ready to change your library book, you can choose anything from the School Library. In class, you will be expected to use a selection of texts or books to collect a range of information about a topic.


In Year 5, you will be expected to read longer texts (at an appropriate level) and be able to refer to the text to support your own opinions and predictions. You will use inference and deduction skills to discuss messages, moods, feelings and attitudes using the clues from the text.


You will also have the opportunity to learn and recite longer poems, using your voice effectively.
