In the words of Dr Seuss,
"The more that your read the more things you will know.
The more that you learn the more places you'll go!"
At Roe Farm we recognise the importance of instilling a love of reading and books from the moment pupils join our school. We use Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised to ensure a consistent approach to the teaching of phonics throughout the school.
To support the application of phonics and reading skills, pupils have access to matched Little Wandle reading books and the Oxford Reading Tree scheme. Our reading scheme was updated in 2020 and again in 2021 to ensure that all children have the opportunity to read fluently and confidently, whatever their age and stage of reading. We also provide a wealth of other books in classrooms and within our dedicated school library.
Reading skills are taught and practised in three-weekly Whole Class Reading sessions from Year 3-6. Texts in these sessions support our learning in Talk for Writing and vice-versa, allowing us to deepen our understanding.
