Reading in Year 4



Using a core text offers several advantages. It allows for a shared reading experience, enabling pupils to discuss and explore the themes, characters, and ideas together. This collaborative aspect can be highly beneficial, as pupils can learn from each other's insights and interpretations, fostering a sense of community and intellectual growth.


In Year 4, we have meticulously selected a range of captivating books that align with our learning objectives, foster a love for reading, and enhance our pupils' understanding of various subjects. We thoroughly enjoy our daily class reading sessions, where we delve into the following core texts: "Alice in Wonderland," "Julius Caesar," "Hiawatha and the Peacemaker," "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea," "This Morning I Met a Whale," and "Erik the Viking."
