Reading is the most important skill that children must master during their time at primary school. Reading opens up the doors to the whole world of learning. At St. Bernadette’s, our primary goal is to make sure that every child learns to read. We rely on the parents of our children to help us in this task by: listening to their child read every night; talking to them about books and reading stories to their children.
We use a scheme known as Read Write Inc. It is a systematic phonics and reading programme that is great fun and very pacey.
All of the children in years Foundation Stage and Key Stage One are organised in to ability groups for a Read Write Inc lessons each morning. The groups vary in size from 5 to 20 children.
Children are regularly assessed and move from one group to another as they progress.
