At King Charles we are dedicated to supporting every child to reach their full potential in reading.
We aim to make reading lessons engaging, interactive and vocabulary rich. We pride ourselves on encouraging a love for reading throughout school by:
Our engaging and inviting library is open for parents and children after school on a Tuesday and Thursday from 3:15pm-4:00pm, we would love to see you there!
- Daily story time sessions
- Daily guided reading sessions.
- Phonics lessons in Key Stage One and EYFS.
- The use of big books throughout school.
- Weekly visits to our school library.
- Home reading including; bug club, reading books and comprehension questions.
- Exposing children to different and stimulating authors.
- Having a wide variety of texts for children to access for example; newspapers, magazines, fiction, non-fiction, comics and many more engaging texts.
- A large selection of Rotary books which children can take home and read at their own leisure.
- Book centred topics including a range of books in the classrooms linked to our learning.
We have recently introduced a peer reading scheme into Year 5. Each morning at 8.45am, some of our Year 5 children have a reading session with a reading buddy from Year 6.
The Year 6 children have been given training in how to support reading and how to ask appropriate comprehension questions.
The sessions are really popular and the children from Year 5 are already making good progress.
Because the scheme has been so successful, we are planning to run a similar peer reading programme in Years 3, 4 and 5.
Here are some websites that you can visit at home to help with your reading:
