Reading Schemes

Reading Schemes 

Children throughout the school read a varying range of books from the adventures of Max, Cat, Ant and Tiger in the Project X programme which follows our synthetic phonics letters and sounds to the Totem series. We use book banding, a scheme which allows children to choose books from all the reading schemes in school, giving them confidence that they are reading books at the right level.  

Probably the easiest way to help your child is to read each day. Our Reading Activities leaflet will provide lots of activities to make reading an even more enjoyable and active experience for all. Children should be encouraged to read aloud and read on their own, but being read to is really important, too, so don’t overlook the bedtime story!
