Reading

 

When some children are learning to read, they catch on so quickly that it appears effortless. It does not seem to matter what reading curriculum or teachers they encounter, for they arrive at school already possessing the important foundational skills. For other children, though, the path to literacy is far more difficult and by no means assured. It matters very much what curriculum their schools use and who their first teachers are.

 

So what does reading look like at Ocker Hill?

 

It is seen in a variety of ways; from phonics to reading for pleasure to guided reading in classrooms. Each classroom has a reading area; engaging for all children to explore and investigate a variety of skills and books. 

 

School has a library that is accessed regularly for all children in particular Key Stage one and also Reading for pleasure offers an exciting time for children to read for pleasure without the constraints and pressures of assessment and progression.
