Grange Primary School Reading…
Become a Great Learner by Becoming a Great Reader.
Here at Grange Primary School, we recognise the importance of becoming a great learner. Becoming a great learner grows out of becoming a great reader. Reading begins before children start school and the impact of their early experiences with books, rhymes and environmental print, along with parental support can make a real difference to their future potential. Children need to see great role models; whether reading the newspaper or a magazine or stopping at the bus stop to read the sign.
Research shows that supporting reading at home is the key ingredient in your child’s education and the single most important thing you can do to help your child.
Reading is always a top priority at Grange Primary School and we are currently using the Oxford Reading Tree Scheme. The scheme continues to be extended year on year to ensure a range of interesting and engaging texts are available for all abilities and phonic phases. Other reading initiatives at the school include Project X and reading dogs.
We use the Government published systematic phonics programme known as Letters and Sounds. Children rapidly learn how to decode words and begin to read fluently. We make sure that our children deepen their understanding of what they have read by questions and working on comprehension skills.
We are currently looking at revamping our library so that more children are encouraged to have a love of books and have an active involvement in choices of books available.
