Reading and Phonics

At Oakworth, we love reading!

Reading Club

We invited adults from school to join us with our reading club.

Seth 6H, "I liked it when Mrs Mayo came to be my partner - she complimented the snacks we had!"

Connor 6H, "When Miss Layfield came to the club, it made me think more carefully about my answers."

Emma 6H, "I liked working with Miss Robinson because she really helped me."

Sarah 6H, "If Miss Blott wasn't at reading club, I probably wouldn't have been able to do it by myself."

Teaching Phonics

There has been a big shift in the past few years in how we teach reading in school.  This is having a huge impact and helping many children learn to read and spell.  Phonics is recommended as the first strategy that children should be taught in helping them learn to read.  Phonics runs alongside other teaching methods to help children develop vital reading skills and give them a real love of reading – hopefully for life.

Useful websites to help your child


Historic Newspapers

The UK’s largest private archive of old newspapers, Historic Newspapers, stock more than seven million genuine original newspapers in their ever-growing collection.

Looking after the world’s biggest private archive of original newspapers means Historic Newspapers are exceptionally passionate about history. It’s for this reason they decided to select interesting and important coverage from significant historical dates – all in the name of learning – with a view to teach others about the past, as it was reported at the time.

Best of all, they’ve offered these teaching packs to us which will be available in our school library in September- to help students discover the cause and consequence of historical events.

A newspaper book is a wonderful way to teach children about World War One, as each newspaper is filled with stories from eyewitnesses who were present at the time, making it a pleasurable way to aid learning and engage a pupil’s interest and imagination. The World War One newspaper book can be used to discuss the changing nature of conflict, the cooperation between countries, the shift of alliances and the lasting impact of the war on national, ethnic, cultural and religious issues.
