Trail : home / Curriculum : Reading


Reading is obviously recognised as an essential element of all learning. We aim to teach the skills of reading and to foster a lifelong love of language.  Children bring books home from their earliest days in school. We view the education of children as a partnership with parents and ask them to read with their children as often as possible. Early reading books are levelled carefully and children work systematically through each level at their own pace.

The infant children will be heard to read in school as often as possible. Much of their reading will be done in the literacy hour, but individual reading will also occur. All of the children have access to the school library where they can borrow books to bring home and share.

Reading Schemes in School:-

  • Oxford Reading Tree Heinneman
  • Cambridge scheme 123 and Away
  • Ginn All Aboard Bangers and Mash
  • Rhyme World Story World

We also include a large selection of non scheme books within the levels.
