Reading Journals!

Here are some of Widemouth's reading journal entries from the last term. Check them out below!

We are passionate about reading at Kilkhampton Junior and Infant School.  Over the last few years we have invested several thousand pounds in order to improve our stock of books.

In addition to this, we have improved our school reading areas and have employed a school librarian, Mrs McGrath to open the library after school for parents.  In addition to this, Mrs McGrath has trained children to be librarians, these librarians open the library at lunchtime for fellow pupils.

 

In this section you can find information about our approach to reading, our reading scheme and how we encourage our pupils to read for pleasure.

We use the Oxford Reading Tree reading scheme in the Foundation Stage and through Key Stage One and Two until children become more confident in their reading.  Our books are banded with children moving up a band when they are ready for the next stage.

 

Once children have passed lime stage, they have a greater choice of the books they read.  Our books are still banded to give children and parents information about appropriately challenging books.  Information about our book banding system can be found in the table below.
