At Brookhouse Primary School, we deliver Whole Class Reading lessons to ensure that pupils develop their reading skills and become confident readers. We have planned the Whole Class Reading provision so that pupils are able to read a range of genres in Fiction, Non-fiction and Poetry.
We are working hard to ensure that reading throughout school is purposeful and progressive. Below are the completed Progression of skills documents for Reading in each year group:
Reading at home with children is extremely important in helping them develop a real love of books. We encourage parents to listen to their children read at home at least three times a week. Please find attached a link to a Key Stage 1 question booklet which can be used at home during reading time.
This year we celebrated World Book Day during Author week. Throughout Author week we took part in a range of activities to inspire us and broaden our knowledge of books and authors.
Some of these activities included: Read to Achieve Magic Show, Movie Night,Parents reading session and bring pets into
school during World Wildlife Day(we looked at animal theme books on this day.) We were also given Headteacher homework
listing authors from A -Z. Our knowledge was put to the test in a whole school quiz called Author Blockbusters!
For World Book Day, pupils dressed up as their favourite animal characters and had their faces painted at school! Take a look at how we celebrated the week.
