Reading at Warstones

At Warstones Primary School, we recognise the importance of reading as a life skill that will open doors to all subjects for children. We understand the significant role played by parents, teachers and support staff in supporting children to read with enjoyment and fluency.


Children at Warstones are exposed to quality texts from EYFS and across the school, which both stimulate and assist the children to read. Along with these ‘core’ texts the children in EYFS and KS1 and where appropriate in KS2, children are taught the Read Write Inc. synthetic phonic scheme and use the Oxford Reading Tree Reading scheme to build their confidence in ‘decoding’ and the reading of high frequency words. In Key Stage Two, the children are exposed to 'real books' when reading for pleasure, as well as taught through the use of whole class texts and genres with class novels encouraging children to try new authors and genres. 

Reading Domains

At warstones, we teach our reading to the children through the reading domains.

Reading Trees

Have you seen our Reading Trees as you have travelled around school? Each tree has been designed and decorated by staff and children based around a favourite book, author or poet. If ever you are in and around school, why not grab a checklist from the school office and see how many trees you can spot during your visit!


Reading Challenge

THANK YOU so much for your amazing response to our whole school reading challenge. Over 100 children brought in their challenge cards after half term and we have had so many positive responses from children and parents. The photo's sent in were brilliant too!
