In KS2, Guided Reading happens every day at the same time as Phonics. As many children will be new to the format, we will begin simply, by embedding a least one Reading Vipers skill a day (below). Our two Guided Reading texts for Summer 2 (2023) are 'Mr Penguin and the Lost Treasure' and 'Two Weeks with the Queen'.



It has been weeks since Mr Penguin's last adventure and he's been stuck at his desk, twiddling his flippers ever since. That is until the phone rings! Mr Penguin and Colin (a spider and Mr Penguin's silent right-hand man) are called in to find the missing treasure somewhere in the Museum of Extraordinary Objects. The quest finds them solving secret codes, fighting ferocious beasts, eating fish finger sandwiches and travelling deep below the museum to a lost jungle...


Colin Mudford is on a quest. His brother Luke has cancer and the doctors in Australia don't seem to be able to cure him. Sent to London to stay with relatives, Colin is desperate to do something to help Luke. He wants to find the best the doctor in the world. Where better to start than by going to the top? Colin is determined to ask the Queen for her advice.

Children, remember that reading is the single most important thing you can do for your education. At St Georges we aim to foster a love of reading with our children. Our guided reading sessions as well as daily story time are really enjoyed by children. Parents and carers, please, please listen to your child read every night if you can - it is one of the best things that you can do to support their learning.anjan-sarkar-illustration-of-boy-reading-b-heart.png

Children will have two books to take home with them from school - one colour-coded book which has been chosen according to their reading level, and a Reading for Pleasure book they have chosen themselves from the Book Corner. 

Your child should have access a wide range of reading texts to inspire and challenge them on their reading journey. Your local library is free to join, and you can borrow books for FREE! Audiobooks are great too, and Youtube has lots of story books for your child to enjoy.

Amazon also do free children's ebooks on their website - you do not need a kindle to access these digital texts.

We would love to hear from you!
