Perhaps choosing a story could become part of your bedtime routine or a nice time together as a family. We would love to see photos of you accessing the resource. Please share them on seesaw or Evidence Me.

At Brandesburton Primary School, we use a wide range of strategies to promote a child’s love of books.  We hope to encourage children to become confident, independent readers.  Children are provided with many opportunities to read, enjoy and share books as well as being exposed to a language rich environment, which provides access to many different types of print.

Reading at school takes place in a variety of ways.

Individual
Children work individually with an adult to read a text.  This may be useful to practice skills or for assessments.

Shared
Children work with challenging texts, allowing comprehension skills to be developed and unknown words to be discussed.

Guided
Children work in small groups with text selected by the teacher at the instructional level.

Personal
Children work with self-selected material including familiar texts.

Focused
Children work individually, in groups or as a whole class to use and apply their reading skills to complete a range of tasks.
