We aim for all children to read with confidence, fluency and understanding; to have an interest in the written word and read for enjoyment and to use a range of independent strategies to self-monitor and correct. We use the reading scheme Read, Write, Inc. throughout the school. This is a phonics based scheme and builds confidence in reading, spelling and key words. Children are encouraged to take a book of appropriate level home as often as possible and to give depth to their reading the 'home' books are phonics and non- phonics based but most are not RWI based.
