Reading and Phonics at Greenleas

At Greenleas we see reading as an integral part of the school curriculum that impacts on all learning. Reading for pleasure is at the heart of our approaches to all forms of reading, and responding to reading. We value the importance of being a confident reader, and support reading skills in school through a reading enriched curriculum. Children are taught to read with confidence, fluency and understanding, providing them with the skills required to achieve a lifetime of enjoyment through reading. Children read in school independently, in guided groups, with reading buddies, and as a shared class session.

Time is set aside for sharing quality texts with our children both in class and between classes. Our aim is for children to enjoy reading a wide range of different books and to be able to confidently talk about different books, authors and preferences. Older children are given the opportunity to read to, and with younger children. Assemblies and book celebration days are used to promote the latest recommended children's read and children are encouraged to visit our school library full of exciting books.

Our Reading aims are:

  • To develop phonetic skills which lead to blending and reading accurately and fluently ( schemes used are Jolly Phonics and Letters and Sounds.)
  • To promote confidence and positive attitudes to reading through access to a wide range of literature.
  • To develop their vocabulary and comprehension of what they have read.
  • To provide a range of books celebrating diversity.
  • To encourage good home/school partnerships.
  • To use quality texts which celebrate British values.
  • To enable children to analyse what they read and to participate in discussion and debate about texts.
  • To monitor each child's progress through the use of a range of assessment strategies .
  • To support those children who require additional help with their reading.

During World Book Week, Year 1/2 came back to school for a special bedtime reading session. They came in their pyjamas, all nice and snuggly, and with their teddies. We all enjoyed reading some of their favourite story books!
