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.
