We use the Collins Big Cat Reading scheme for reading which expertly meets the requirements of the reading curriculum through engaging, stimulating and challenging texts. The teaching of reading is a key priority and as a school we enjoy celebrating reading across all subject areas.
During discrete reading lessons, children are taught primarily through the domains, there is also additional one 2 one reading, shared reading where children are paired to read with another child across the school. This will resume once restrictions are lifted.
Each day the class enjoys listening to a class story to help promote reading for pleasure. This book could be linked to their theme or a chosen book by the class.
We also encourage children to read for ten to fifteen minutes a day at home as part of their weekly homework.
Children are also able to access our library. They are able to browse and borrow books; they learn about book handling and how books are organised.
