Read, Write, Inc.


Since the beginning of the academic year, all pupils in the infants have been accessing the Read, Write, Inc scheme for developing their sound knowledge daily. Everything connects: children connect sounds with mnemonic pictures; words with their meanings; and stories with the sounds they know. They connect their own experiences to the stories they read and learn to lift the words off the page.


Group Guided Reading


Group Guided Reading involves a 'carousel' of activities. This means that there will be an activity laid out on each table while the teacher works with a small number of children to analyse a text in detail, making sure each child progress in their reading and discuss the meaning of the text with them. Group guided reading sessions take place every day so that at the end of each week, each child has had some quality reading time with a teacher. 


Home Reading


One of the most beneficial things you can do with your child at home is reading so please make time to read with them as often as possible. Children will be sent home with home reading materials every Friday. 


My On


All pupils have access to MyOn - our online reading resource. Your child has unique login details that will give them access to a wealth of online books assigned to them. 


Please be aware that as well as reading the books/texts available to them, pupils must also complete the comprehension tasks that have been assigned (which will take you to the Accelerated Reader website). Please encourage your children to leave a book review once they finish each book.
