Teaching Early Reading
We strongly believe that reading is the key to accessing most other subjects within the curriculum and is a basis for having a sound education. We strive to teach the children the key skills to be able to read, as well as a passion and love for books and reading. We provide an environment conducive to this by ensuring children are exposed to a rich variety of texts, opportunities to share and enjoy books and the role models they need to experience why reading is so great!
Guided Reading is a dedicated, accurately planned session, in both small groups and whole class, during which children are taught the skills to become confident, independent and motivated readers. Skills we teach include; application of phonics to decode words, self-correction, self-monitoring, omission to work out unknown words, reading for meaning and inference.
We have collated some tips and suggestions to help parents’ effectively support their children when reading at home. This Parents’ Guide explains the key skills and strategies we use with children to enable them to become independent and confident readers. Please click on the links below.
