At St Chad's we are passionate about reading because we believe that it is the foundation of success. We aim for all of our children to develop a life long love of reading.
The teacher will read to the children several times a week. Every child from Nursery to Year 6 is given a reading book that they will bring home every night. At St Chad's, we use a wide range of books that are phonetically matched to your child’s reading ability alongside Read Write Inc phonics books. Please share this book with them as often as you can, preferably a few pages every night, and write a comment in their reading record. Reading books need to be in school every day.
Your child will then read with their class teacher or another adult (either once, twice or three times a week depending on their ability) to check their ability to read accurately and fluently, and their understanding of the book. In addition to this, your child will also have daily guided reading sessions within ReadWriteInc lessons or RAMP sessions in Key Stage 2. They also have an opportunity to use our lovely library area. They can borrow an extra book from the library or their classroom library.
