Reading Schemes

The children’s reading is developed through the use of not one, but a variety of published schemes as follows:

  • Oxford Reading Tree
  • All Aboard
  • Rigby Star
  • Sunshine Spirals
  • Cambridge
  • Oxford Literacy Web
  • Jumpstart

The books in each scheme are book banded by reading level/complexity so that the children are exposed to a variety of fiction genres (including poetry) and non-fiction.  This allows the children to see different texts presented in a wide variety of styles.  Reading books are changed weekly, with children being encouraged to re-read books so that they become familiar with the texts and so as to encourage discussion with parents to aid comprehension.  This ‘scheme’ continues into KS2. The children may also supplement their given reading books with books from the class bookshelves so that they can choose books to take home, share and enjoy.
