Reading

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go” Dr Seuss

Through our bespoke curriculum and differentiated reading pathways all our children are given the opportunity to learn to read at a level appropriate for them. For many of our children, reading may look different. Below presents some examples of how reading may look in the different curriculum pathways.

The Roots Curriculum is taught in Owl Class

The Trunk Curriculum is taught in 80% of classes across school

For those children who are ready to read more formally, we use three different reading schemes: See and Learn, Oxford Reading Tree and Read, Write, Inc. The reading schemes we use encompass a range of strategies including blending and segmenting and sight vocabulary as we recognise that children have different learning styles. For more information please see the schools Literacy Policy or contact Jess Andrews (Literacy coordinator).
