How do we teach Reading?

Book Colours Picture

As a child’s reading progresses from early reading they begin to move though the reading scheme at their own pace and developmental understanding. The reading scheme book bands are structured  to  encourage children to read for longer periods of time and begin to ask and answer questions about what they have read and what they have understood. The phonics scheme used in school is Read Write Inc which incorporates a reading element of the session with comprehension questions and discussion as well as discussing new words and their meanings.

As the children become more confident readers they participate in group reading sessions where they can enjoy stories poems and non-fiction, often linked to the topic areas. The books are used to teach specific reading skills and enable the children to develop language and ideas for their own writing.  In addition to this, teachers regularly read to the children just for pleasure and enjoyment to foster a love of reading. The school’s overall objective is to nurturer a love of reading and for each child to become a fluent and confident reader.
