All children take home reading books from reception onwards, with some children doing so in the nursery if we consider them ready. The school has a wide range of books which are matched to a child’s level of phonics understanding. Our books come from a range of reading schemes, including Oxford Reading Tree
, Pearson Bug Club
, Collins Big Cat
and Oxford University Project X
The children are heard read individually once per week by a teacher or teaching assistant and also take part in a minimum of one guided reading session per week.
We ask that you help with the children's reading at home by hearing them read up to 3 times a week in reception and up to 5 times a week in Key Stage 1.
