We aim to instill a love of reading within all our children. From EYFS through to Year 6 we have Project X and Oxford Reading Tree reading materials for both home and guided reading. We also buy into Reading Eggs, an online reading library, which is accessible for all both in school and at home, as well as making use of the online resource from Pearson, The Bug Club, for our KS2 children. We still have some older reading materials from New Way and PM which we continue to use to support development of reading in school. Our PTFA have been extremely helpful in providing additional funds to support us in updating our reading materials and schemes. We will continue to develop home reading material throughout this academic year.
Once children are fluent and confident readers, we provide a wide range of longer novels, and more challenging texts, by a range of authors, for children to make 'free' choices from.
We have a new library within school which we encourage our children and their families to make use of. Our Year 5 and 6 children will act as librarians, guiding children in choices they make, following training!
