At LCPS, children in Key Stage Two are taught daily guided reading sessions. The sessions are sequenced across the week to explore fiction, non-fiction and poetry.
Children in Key Stage One begin the transition into Guided Reading but with less frequent lessons, while they prioritise their phonics development.
As a teaching team, we carefully compiled our fiction spine to provide children with a rich and diverse reading tapestry. This selection of over 70 books will be read by all children during their learning journey at LCPS. The stories have been chosen to expose children to writing from different eras and cultures with a range of diverse characters and settings. They link to our core values and are filled with powerful examples of empathy, integrity, courage, resilience and respect.
The children take Rhino Readers (Twinkl phonics scheme) books home each week from our wide range of genres and topics, and the books chosen are linked to the phonics phases they are learning. Children are also encouraged to explore the reading corners and school library taking an extra book home to read with an adult.
Children read to an adult in school during the week. This is recorded in their reading record. Children may be heard by the teacher, headteacher, teaching assistants or school volunteers and parent helpers. All volunteers and parent helpers have up to date DBS checks.
