Individual Reading

The children regularly read to adults in a variety of lessons and contexts. We have a range of fiction and non-fiction books from which the children choose. The children will be asked questions to check their understanding of what they are reading. We like to write comments in the children’s reading records and we encourage parents to write comments in these books when they have heard their child read at home. Reading books are  changed regularly.  We use a range of reading schemes to support individual reading such as:

  • Oxford Reading Tree
  • Bug Club
  • Phonics Bug


Guided Reading

The children participate in daily guided reading sessions.  The children complete a range of activities and enjoy and discuss a variety of classic children’s books.  We have a range of reading schemes for guided reading to offer our children a breadth of reading material.  For guided reading we use:

  • Bug Club in KS2
  • Talk Through Stories (Read Write Inc) in EYFS and KS1
