Reading is central to everything we do at Grangetown Primary School. Once the children move into Key Stage 2, we develop and build on their foundations of phonics and comprehending from Key Stage 1.
All children take home books to read which are aligned to their phonic knowledge and progression. In Year 3, 4, 5 and 6, children are enrolled into the Accelerated Reader scheme whereby they read books and complete comprehension questions at the correct level for their reading ability. Once they are ready to change their book they are able to freely choose a book that matches their level.
Alongside strengthening reading skills we believe children should also evolve in reading for pleasure, we encourage this through starting our day with a ‘Book and a Bagel’, Free Read Fridays, our class novels and with access to the Get Epic online library.
