Reading for Pleasure
At Highfields, we believe that is incredibly important that children develop a love of reading and find books and authors that they enjoy reading. Each month, a 'book of the month' is introduced to the children and copies purchased for each year group so the children are able to choose to read them.
At Highfields, we deliver a consistent approach to phonics when teaching reading. We use the Little Wandle programme to ensure children become fluent readers. Once fluent, children then start Book Talk sessions. This is a consistent approach to reading that allows children to develop their comprehension skills during structured sessions focussing on reading a range of books.
Please see below our Phonics and Book Talk policies.
