We use Read, Write Inc to start off our early readers and introduce phonics.
Once children start on our Reading Pathway, we have a wide range of books which are banded according to reading ability.
Schemes included in book banding include: Project X, Oxford Reading Tree, Dandelion and Ginn.
Our extensive library includes fiction and non-fiction, poetry and picture book sections.
We aim to show our pupils the value we give to reading, so we aim to utterly drench the pupils in reading: to spark a love of literature, that will in turn improve reading AND writing standards and to cultivate a ‘reading for pleasure’ culture throughout our school.
Please take up our challenge to 'Strive for 5' that is, read with your children at least 5 times each week: it could be a comic, magazine, newspaper, non-fiction book, novel, school reading book, library book, recipe… the list is endless!
You won't believe the difference it will make to their learning!
