A variety of levelled texts are used throughout the school to help children practise their early reading skills. Children also have opportunities to extend their love of reading through guided reading sessions and shared texts through the Power of Reading. Each class has a well- stocked book corner and children are expected to borrow books that can be shared with parents and carers. Parents in the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 are welcomed into school to take part in weekly reading mornings.
Children in Key Stage 1 have the opportunity to buy books in a weekly ‘Book Club’ where the books are competitively priced through this book saving scheme.
Communication is vital to all aspects of learning so we ensure our teaching across the whole curriculum includes opportunities for speaking and listening, drama and writing. It is our aim that our children communicate clearly with confidence.
