Reading in School

In addition to daily guided reading, children will experience a range of reading opportunities in all subject areas. This allows them to consolidate the reading skills they have been taught in the English lesson. Our progression in reading books is book band based, allowing for a mixture of genres and characters, rather than simply following one scheme. Once children are fluent readers they access the range of books in our library, but are still encouraged to widen their reading experiences rather than stick with a preferred author.  


Reading at Home

For advice on the type of questions you can ask your child to support the comprehension skills taught, please see the colour book banded bookmarks that are sent home in the home reading books.
