At West Melton Primary School we strive to ensure every child develops a love of reading.
We do this through:
Reading and Phonics
Our primary approach to phonics is the Read Write Inc programme for Foundation Stage and KS1 with some children accessing this programme as intervention in KS2.
Our primary reading scheme for FS and early KS1 is Oxford Reading Tree. We use these reading books to support the teaching and learning of phonics, which is the primary approach to teaching early reading.
In addition to this phonics based scheme, we also use a range of other books which support the teaching of further reading and comprehension skills. These include:
We also teach from a wide range of levelled picture books, information books and chapter books by independent authors.
In KS2, we continue to teach reading using books from the list above but as children become more competent fluent readers, we also use a wider range of novels and extended texts to challenge and interest them at an age appropriate level through a book study.
We are using clarifying techniques to find out the meaning of new words we come across.
New words we clarified as part of our work on The Sheep Pig were:- developments, education, despite and hazard.
At school we believe PE and sport plays an important role in making our vision statement a reality for every pupil, with the potential to change pupil's lives for the better.
We have welcomed the Government's announcement to provide additional funding to improve provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our young people.
