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: that I can read quietly and I can choose the books I want to read.

I think I need to practice: I need to try and stay in one spot.

Fantastic honest reflection Luca. You have thought hard about your learning and your next steps. Read to self is all about building your reading stamina so you can read for longer and longer. Remember to take 3 or 4 books from your book box and 2 or 3 from the library corner to your read to self spot. That will mean you have enough books for the whole of read to self and you can read the whole 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)
Kerri thinks

Submerge and blow bubbles
Kerri thinks

Float on my back (Starfish)
Kerri thinks

Float on my front (Starfish)
Kerri thinks

Pick up objects with my hand
Kerri thinks

Rocket arms on my front
Kerri thinks

Rocket arms on my back
Kerri thinks


I am really proud of: I can float on my back.

It is tricky when: i want to play and Kerri is giving instuctions.

The next thing I want to learn is: diving like a dolphin.

You are a great swimmer Luca and I love how you have practised the parts you found tricky like starfish floating. Remember to listen and follow instructions even when you are in the pool and you want to play. I think with a little bit of practise you will be diving like a dolphin. I hope we can get back into the pool this year so we can have a go.
