We believe that reading should be a source of pleasure and that it is the key to learning. We aim to involve parents in children’s reading as much as possible. Children read to a range of adults, either individually or in groups, on a daily basis.
Their Individual Reading Record books are an important source of communication between home and school, especially in the early years. We use a structured reading scheme alongside a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books.

Phonics are taught using the ReadWrite Inc. programme. We use a combination of whole class teaching and group or individual work.

The New National Curriculum is used as a guide, but work is also taught thematically to reinforce and link to other areas of the curriculum.

In Year 1 our children take the National Phonics screening Test. Here is a link to an app that will support them in this.

Our reading scheme is based on the Book Bands for Guided Reading scheme produced by The Institute of Education, University of London.
