In EYFS and Key Stage 1, children follow the Read, Write Inc. programme to develop their phonic knowledge and build the skills required to be able to read fluently. In addition to this, they share and discuss a range of books and non fiction texts as part of their topics to deepen their understanding of what they are reading as well as sparking interesting in their Learning Challenge topics.
In Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, children are taught Shared Reading first thing in the morning. In these sessions, children are faced with challenging and exciting texts (linked to their topics where possible) and are taught the skills required to fully understand and comprehend a text. They discuss vocabulary, finding answers using the text and providing evidence to support their answers.
Reading at Home
Children are expected to read 4 times per week at home. Classes then take part in a whole-school competition, and the class with the highest percentage of children that have read 4 times that week win biscuits! They also work towards earning themselves an extra play time.
If your child would like to enter our competition, send a picture of them reading somewhere exciting to firstname.lastname@example.org
