In addition to individual reading, children at Ladywood will take part in weekly Big Read lessons. In year 4 big reading happens every Thursday. During these sessions children have chance to enjoy our class author books as well as a range of different stories and non- fiction text types. These lessons teach specific reading skills to the children. Each skill is taught with the help of the Big Read characters below.
