Reading is obviously recognised as an essential element of all learning. We aim to teach the skills of reading and to foster a lifelong love of language. Children bring books home from their earliest days in school. We view the education of children as a partnership with parents and ask them to read with their children as often as possible. Early reading books are levelled carefully and children work systematically through each level at their own pace.
Key Stage one children will be heard to read in school as often as possible. Much of their reading will be done in English lessons, but individual reading will also occur. All of the children will bring books home to read and parents can comment in their reading records.
We follow the Read, Write, Inc scheme to teach phonics and spelling.
Our school library is open during break times and lunchtimes, Monday - Friday for pupils to borrow books.
Well done to all the children that completed our October reading challenge - READING BINGO.
Keep a look out for our Christmas Reading Challenge which will be coming soon!
