We follow a range of reading scheme books including Dandelion, Phonics Bug, Project X and Oxford Reading tree. These reading scheme books are used during children’s early stages of reading to enable them to master the mechanics of the process. Our reading schemes include a range of phonetically decodable text which encourages the children to apply their phonic knowledge.
We supplement the reading scheme with a range of high quality fiction and non-fiction texts as reading for pleasure is extremely important.
A variety of high-quality fiction, non-fiction and age-appropriate texts are available for children to choose from within all classrooms.
Whilst our main priority is to improve the love of reading by providing children with the opportunity to choose their own books, teachers regularly check that children have chosen an appropriate book matched to their reading level and that they are enjoying the book.
