Reading is one of the greatest skills in life we can give our children, and there is nothing better than choosing a book and 'Reading for Pleasure'
We have books that we would recommend for each age range but children can choose from other groups to match ability or interests. Please see the documents below for more information and to see the books we are using as core reading, fiction and reading for pleasure.
We have Reading Ambassadors in school to give 'Pupil Voice' see below for ideas and outcomes from their recent meeting:
Full guidance on how we teach and help our children learn to read and write is detailed within our policy see attached below.
Phonics - Little Wandle
Phonics is taught daily in school from Reception upwards with Phonic screening generally taking place in Year 1 with follow ups in Year 2.
All Academy teaching & support staff have undertaken acredited training for Little Wandle and are embedding this DfE approved scheme into daily learning. Children were very excited to begin using the new books!
Please follow links below for Parental support guides:
Children also use Phonics Play, this is an interactive App, with phonics games and resources that children love while helping them to hear the sounds they need to improve their reading along with their speech & language development.
