Read to Self

We are learning to read to self. This builds our reading stamina and helps us to get better at reading. We also have lots of fun reading!

Success Criteria

  • I read quietly
  • I concentrate on the book
  • I stay in space
  • I read the whole time
  • I get started straight away

How I am going

Read to self
Kerri thinks


I really like: some of the books have really fun pictures and I like to pick your own books.

I think I need to practice: focussing on my book for the whole time.

Read to self is a time to build up your reading stamina. This means you can read for longer and longer without stopping. You need to practise focussing on your book for the whole time, staying in one spot and reading the whole time. That will give you loads of time to practise all those skills and strategies you are learning with Julie and during reading time.

We are learning to build our confidence in and around the water. We practise our swimming skills and love to show off our new tricks.

This is what I have been practising:
Safe entry into the pool (1/4 turn entry)

Submerge and blow bubbles

Float on my back (Starfish)

Float on my front (Starfish)
Kerri thinks

Pick up objects with my hand
Kerri thinks

Rocket arms on my front

Rocket arms on my back
Kerri thinks


I am really proud of: myself because I can submerge and blow bubbles 

It is tricky when: floating on your back

The next thing I want to learn is: flipping on the water

You have grown inconfidence throught this terms Kyree and it has been great to see all the cool tricks you have to show! You enter the pool safely and can do rocket arms and a starfish float on your front. Floating and Rocket arms can be tricky on your back, remember to push your tummy to the sky and tilt your chin up to help you float.

MY Birthday

We had a cool day in High 5 today. It was Kyree's birthday and he turned 6. His family made a delicious cake for us to share. It was a bit funny because the icing was very blue and it turned our teeth and mouth all blue.
