At Dobcroft Junior School, we encourage children to have a love for reading and make sure that they thoroughly enjoy reading.
Each class will have a Guided Reading session at least four times a week. During this session, the children will complete a variety of different activities on a carousel basis throughout the week.
These activities can include:
-Guided reading with the teacher
- Follow up comprehension task
- Spelling Box
….and many more
When the children are reading with their teacher, they will practise reciprocal reading skills that include: predicting, questioning, clarifying and summarising. All these skills help contribute to being a fluid, good reader.
By using reading records, we encourage each child to read at home. We make sure we celebrate reading by having a reading champion each half term and by organising events such as the Usborne Book Fair, Sponsored Read and World Book Day.
