At Brookland we are very proud of our achievements in reading and work hard to encourage in our children a love of reading.
In Key Stage 1 we use books from Read, Write Inc. to support reading and phonic development.
All the books within the Read, Write Inc set of books link to sets of sounds that the children are learning in their phonic sessions.
Reading is supported using these books, along with The Oxford Reading Tree, until the children become confident readers.
As children become more confident they complete a STAR reading test and move onto the Accelerated Reader Scheme.
Children are supported in reading and choosing books by staff within the school.
To further develop reading the school uses Reading Vipers across key stage 1 and 2.
