Reading



Once in school, the early teaching of reading is based on phonic-based learning programmes. These include Jolly Phonics and Bigcat Phonics, which dovetail with contextual and graphic frameworks.  It is an interactive approach that covers many styles of learning - auditory, visual and kinaesthetic.  Reading is actively encouraged with reading sessions, the Read and Write programme, and teacher-initiated guided reading sessions. We use the Oxford Reading Tree scheme throughout school. The library is well-resourced with a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books for all ages. It also has a large range of guided reading book sets, too.

 

Pupils are encouraged to get involved in our yearly Readathon; to read daily at home for up to twenty minutes and receive a prize for every 25 reads. After 175 reads they are entered into a draw for a new Kindle Fire. All of which engages the children in a variety of reading alternatives to enhance the National Curriculum. Ingoldisthorpe Primary School Promotes Reading for Pleasure at home and school.

We actively encourage and promote reading with children as young as possible. Reading for pleasure at an early age with your children is a joyful experience. It's wonderful to see their skills develop, and we know that parents play a vital role in catching that reading bug even before schooling begins.
