Our children regularly access a wide variety of books. From Reading Skills to paired reading and visits to the local Library; we provide numerous opportunities for children to read. Early readers follow a range of schemes designed to develop reading skills. They are provided with books tailored to their ability and encouraged to take these home each week. Further up the school, children are given a book to take home each week to encourage reading for pleasure but to also develop text analysis.

Across the school, Reading Skills is used to further explore texts and the children complete independent and adult led activities which are designed to develop their word recognition and comprehension skills.

Children should be encouraged to read for pleasure and we ask that you regularly listen to your child read at home. A wide range of books are available in classrooms and in the school library for children to access. Each child is provided with a Reading Record to be completed on a weekly basis and everyone who listens to the child should be encouraged to make written comments.
