Reading for Pleasure 2018


New home reading scheme

From September 2014, your child may have been bringing home a new style reading book. Our school has invested a lot of money into renewing the home reading scheme. We are now following the Oxford Reading Tree and TreeTops reading schemes, ensuring that we are providing the very best for every child. The children really seem to be enjoying the new books which give a lot more variety to ensure all needs are met. The levels of the new schemes are different to what you will be used to, so please do not worry if the level they were on in the old scheme does not match up to the new scheme. Each child’s reading level has been carefully decided by the class teacher, who will continually monitor to ensure every child is making the best progress they can. We hope you enjoy sharing these books with your child! In school we also have a wide range of other books to ensure that your child is being given every opportunity to read as widely as possible. Every classroom has its own library, where the books are leveled to match individual needs. Some of the other schemes we have in school are:

  • Bug Club
  • Ginn Pocket books
  • Ginn 360
  • Rapid
  • A wide range of colour banded books
