Year 5's Rivers of Reading

This term, Year 5 have been creating 'Rivers of Reading' as part of our homework. This was a new project that encouraged us to reflect on our reading and record everything we read at home! For example, lots of children read different types of texts, such as reports from newspapers and magazine articles (although fiction books were the main choice). 

Some of the highlights include:

  • Anna's river of books that recorded everything she had read over the last month. On each 'kayak' she wrote the name of the best book she had read that week!                                                                         
  • Tyler’s reading record was terrific – with various mentions of the different text types he had read.                                                                                                                          
  • Katie-Jane made an awesome tree with seven leaves representing the things she had read. Her absolute favourite was called ‘Moondial’, which she said was a massive mystery!                                                                                       
  • Luke did an impeccable poster of different texts, such as: 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid', 'Survivors' (which made a nice change from story books) and Tom Gates. He even wrote about his club leaflet – from the Boys' Brigade.

In conclusion, we believe that the project helped inspire the Year 5 pupils to engage in their books and enjoy their reading time! It has helped many of us understand the importance of reading, and how much of it we do already! We now look forward to seeing many more projects from across the year group.

Thanks, Katie-Jane and Anna.
