As a school, we work to ensure that every child is a successful and strategic reader. We have a structured approach to the teaching of reading. This includes the teaching of daily phonics in EYFS and KS1 (see separate tab titled 'Phonics' under curriculum for more details.)
All children have at least a weekly Guided Reading session with a teacher or teaching assistant to develop reading fluency and comprehension skills.
Children in kS2 will develop their reading through whole class reading. Challenging and stimulating texts are carefully chosen by our teachers.
Our children also look forward to finishing their school day with 'story time'. A relaxing way to prepare our children for hometime.
We are also very proud of our Bring Back Bedtime Stories campaign! We now have more children enjoying quality time on an evening with parents and carers.
