2) Reading for enjoyment
Reading happens in all classes every day. Children will share texts as a class, studying and focusing on using their reading skills to answer comprehension questions. Across the curriculum, reading skills will be linked to range of other activities, including spelling and grammar activities, comprehension games and practising joined handwriting. Most children love the reading for pleasure session (D.E.A.R), as you get to read your favourite books in a comfortable spot.
Children who are not yet reading at the expected level for their age, read with an adult every day in Recovery Reading sessions.
