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: when you are reading you can read quietly.

I think I need to practice: saying my opinion.

I can see you enjoy reading to self. You get started straight away, focus on your book, read quietly and stay in one spot. Keep on thinking about what you have read and what you think about it. Try and give reasons for what you think (your opinion) from what you read. Keep it up Jamie!

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
Kerri thinks

Rocket arms on my back
Kerri thinks


I am really proud of: Picking up objects off the bottom of the pool

It is tricky when: I blow bubbles because the bubbles go up my nose.

The next thing I want to learn is: To go the whole way down the pool with no goggles and not touching the bottom at all.

Jamie, you are an excellent swimmer and it has been fabulous to have you sharing your skills during swimming time. I have loved seeing your leadership skills grow during swimming time this year. Keep up the great work!
