Reading Scheme KS1 and KS2
Our curriculum is carefully planned to ensure that reading resources in school maximise children's progress, attainment and love of reading. Recent investment has meant that books across different subject areas and class libraries have been improved significantly. School leaders share the vision and the importance of reading in the primary curriculum. It is a topic that is discussed at staff meetings and all staff share this view. Since Sept 2018 Reading Journals have been introduced across KS2 to ensure that all pupils are reading a broad and balanced range of texts. the children complete activities based on the texts that they have read - this is a very popular piece of homework.
Our early readers follow the Twinkl validated phonics scheme. This scheme is fully explained to our parents at the beginning of the academic year (each year) so that they can support their children.
In 2022, we introduced our Book of the Month across the school, this has proved very popular with all of our pupils, they have enjoyed selecting new books and they are being challenged to read texts that will stretch them. Children enjoy giving book reviews to their peers - there is a great sense of excitement in classrooms when new books arrive.
