Reading at Djanogly Sherwood
‘The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.’ Dr Seuss
The teaching of reading is based on phonics and proven approaches from our reading recovery programme. Children are taught phonics on a daily basis using a multi-sensory approach following Letters and Sounds including elements of the 'Flying with phonics scheme'. Our reading books in school are from a range of schemes and are banded according to the reading recovery book bands.
Children have individual reading books which they are encouraged to read both at home and school. We use RED TED and reading racetracks to reward children who read regularly at home. Reading skills are taught within phonics, Book of the Week or English lessons. Class books are selected to engage and to develop skills and knowledge, where appropriate they are linked with Curriculum topics.
