At least once a week your child will be listened to as they read by the class teacher or teaching assistant. We have a range of Fiction and Non-Fiction books which the children choose.

Reading books are only changed when we think the child fully understands the book they are reading, We use a range of reading schemes to support individual Reading such as:
As well as individual reading at least once a week, teachers also listen to children read during Guided Reading. These are daily Guided Reading sessions where the children read a range of books, both fiction and non-fiction to their class teacher.

We have a range of reading schemes for Guided Reading to ensure we offer our children a breadth of reading material. These include:
We are proud to work with a charity called Intergen which facilitates retired / elderly people coming into school to read with the children. They form great relationships and allow children to be heard reading regularly.
