Reading

Reading at Oakworth

Reading is at the heart of our curriculum and the children are encouraged to read widely through our reading scheme and year group libraries.  Each child has a book banded reading book that matches their phonetic ability and a chosen library book.

 

Guided Reading

Our Guided Reading sessions take place daily in class and cover a wide variety of both fiction and non-fiction books.  These sessions help to advance the children’s comprehension, inference and retrieval skills.

 

Reading for Pleasure

Each week, we spend time reading for pleasure in our classrooms.  When we read for pleasure, we are able to choose the books we wish to read and enjoy, we can choose to share a book with a peer, choose to read topic books related to the wider curriculum or listen to an adult in the classroom reading aloud.  Additionally, all classes have a class novel and adults regularly read aloud to the children to further promote the love of reading.

Library

Each year group has a shared library where the children visit on a regular basis.  Books can be borrowed from the library so children can enjoy reading these at home with family and friends.
