Daily Guided Reading Lessons

In addition to our systematic phonics teaching we teach 30 minutes daily guided reading lessons. These lessons expose the children to quality texts above their independent reading ability.

Each lesson teaches the children;

1. Interesting vocabulary that will allow them to access the text

2. How to read the text aloud through strategies such as echo, choral and partner reading.

3. How to discuss and comprehend the text through the teaching of VIPERS – one per week.

We provide annual information sessions for parents. ‘Reading beyond phonics’


We have an up to date library that inspires and encourages the children to make independent choices of their reading. Every week each class has a library session where they can lend and return books.
