Reading

Reading

Helping our children to become fluent readers is our priority as it supports children's learning across the curriculum and is a key skill that needs to be mastered to ensure that children become successful learners. 

In YR, Y1 and Y2 children benefit from regular small group guided reading sessions with an adult using the Big Cat Collins Reading Scheme which links to our Phonics Scheme.  Our staff have undertaken training from Little Sutton English Hub and use the methods recommended to support our children to develop their early reading skills.  During their reading lessons they will practice applying their phonics skills to decode and read words, practice their prosody and develop their comprehension skills by reading the same text a number of times.  The children will be allocated the same book that they are reading in school as an E-Book for them to practice their reading at home each day.  We also use the Big Cat Collins Reading for Pleasure e-books across the school for the children to access independently at home.

Reading lessons will take place daily for 30 minutes. In YR and Y1, phonics is taught daily and then a reading session, incorporating phonics, occurs three times a week. Y2 will start the year using the phonics/guided reading approach and then move onto more regular whole class reading lessons when the children are ready.

We love reading and we aim to ensure that reading is at the heart of our curriculum. We have selected these 'core texts' to provide a breadth of authors who write in different styles and from a range of different perspectives across a range of different subjects.Through our reading curriculum, we aim to foster a life long love of reading whilst developing all of the necessary skills to become a fluent and inquisitive reader. We use books that have been recommended by ‘Centre for Literacy in Primary Education’ (CLPE) through their ‘Power of Reading' scheme across the whole school for whole class reading.   The Centre for Literacy in Primary Education is an independent UK charity with a global reputation for the quality of their work. They promote high standards in the teaching of literacy and particularly emphasise the importance of books and literature in enabling children to become confident, happy and enthusiastic readers and writers.

Reading to Learn

As well as ensuring all children have many opportunities for learning to read, we also ensure that all children have many opportunities to read to learn.  Our teachers try to incorporate opportunities for children to practice, use and further develop their reading skills across the curriculum to support their learning in other subjects.

We subscribe to the Dudley Library Service and each class receives boxes of books each half term which link to topics in subjects that they are learning about across the wider curriculum.

School Library

We are thrilled that we have recently relaunched our wonderful school library.  Each class visits at least every fortnight and enjoy relaxing and reading books together.  The children also choose books to take back to their class to read and borrow a book to take home.

Our Values

Hope
Courage
Love
Thankfulness
Trust
Forgiveness

Our Values

We are guided and strengthened by our distinctively Christian values of Hope, Courage, Love, Thankfulness, Trust and Forgiveness. These values were chosen by our school community by reflecting deeply on the meaning of 6 key stories from the Bible. These values are nurtured and lived by all in our school community as we continue to learn and grow together.
