In year 5, children are still expected to read LOTS! All children should read at home 5 times a week preferably with an adult. This could be their school reading book, listening to a story read by someone else or sharing a favourite book. All are equally valuable. Reading should be recorded in the reading record book with any relevant comments/observations.
