Welcome to this Blog!

Welcome to our classroom’s blog.

Here, you will find a weekly plan of the lessons that will be carried out in class, information about outings and events, useful links, videos, photos and much more. I hope that this blog will be used by pupils and parents alike,  so that together we will improve our communication and make it an interactive blog.

 Research shows that:

• Students who read over the summer do better in school.

• Students who do not read over the summer demonstrate up to two months of academic loss.

• Students who read for fun outperform those who do not.

• Students read more when they can choose their own books.

• Reading at least 5 books over the summer can prevent academic loss.

• Summer reading loss is cumulative. By the end of Primary, children who do not read over the summer are two years behind the other children in academic achievement.

We are inviting schools to pass on the following guidelines to the parents/caregivers of the children in their schools.

Guidelines for Parents to promote Summer reading:

• Stress the importance of summer reading with your child.

• Make reading exciting, do not think of it as a chore.

• Follow a reading list.

• Create a no TV or video game time during part of each day.

• Join a summer reading programme at Skolasajf or at your local library.

• Let your child choose his/her own books.

• Keep a supply of reading materials around the house.

• Go regularly to the library with children.

• Ask your child questions about the books s/he is reading.

• Read a book to your child.

• Listen to your child read to you.

• Pick a favourite author or series and read all the books.

• Listen to books on CD, ipod, radio, tablet while travelling.

• Model reading for your child.

Here’s a list of books which can be used for Summer reading:
