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 for 3 week cycles.


As part of the Group Guided Reading carousel pupils have their home reading books changed. This means that different children have their books changed on different days so please make sure that your child has their book bag with them at all times.
