Learning to Read
Becoming an Accomplished Reader
It will be no surprise to you that children who read well also achieve well in all curriculum subjects. It will also be of no surprise that children who read widely go on to be outstanding communicators in both the written and spoken disciplines. To help guide your child’s reading at home we have two reading programmes your child can follow that will start to enhance their reading experience which we hope you will extend further, complementing the formal teaching strategies of reading in school.
We assess progress in reading in many ways. Teachers are continually looking for progress daily as they feedback to pupils ways to get even better. We also assess children more formally at the end of term via an examination. The younger children also have routine ‘Spot Checks’ to monitor progress.
