Reading-tips to help your child

Reading is taught daily across school from the Foundation Stage to the end of KS2.


Early reading is taught using phonics (See link at the bottom of this page for more information). Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 have daily phonics sessions as well as group reading practise sessions three times a week.


The group reading book is carefully matched to each child’s phonetic ability and the same book is made available to read at home via an ebook system.


Once children are confident with phonics and are fluent readers then they choose from a range of colour banded books to take home.


As a school we are committed to developing a lifelong love of reading in our children. Opportunities are provided daily for children to read for pleasure, both at school and at home.
