Reading at Woden

At Woden Primary School we aim to equip our children with the passion and skills to be successful at reading

Our children in EYFS and KS1 follow the scheme of Read Write Inc to help start their journey of learning to read. The scheme is well structured and has a levelled set of books written specifically to ensure that every child can take steady and progressive steps towards reading success. To support their learning, we also follow the Oxford Reading Tree Scheme and RWi’s Book Bag Books. Your child will have the chance to choose a book, which is tailored to their needs, and take it home to read with you. Furthermore, each child is provided with a reading diary as a means of encouraging communication between parent and teacher.

As your child progresses through the school they will be immersed in a curriculum that creates and celebrates a pleasure for reading. Children will be able to choose books from our in-school library to read within class, enjoy story times with their teacher’s favourite books and take part in whole class guided reading sessions.

Our aim is to encourage and promote a reading for pleasure attitude in each of our pupils and hope that you will help encourage this too!
