Careful tracking and assessment to support progress Key Texts Key Texts Each year group teaches literacy through a key text linked to the topic. All classroom literacy is based on a key text. The key texts provide a basis for the learning opportunities on the

previous slides. Different Methods of Teaching Reading Individual Reading Has a duration of about 5 minutes per child per week 1:1 teacher and child

Focuses on individual childrens needs Supports childrens confidence Takes place when most children are having lunch, only a few children in the classroom at the time Guided Reading Children read in small groups of 6 children Read with the teacher once a week

Session lasts for about 20 minutes Teaching is based around general needs for the children in that group In the 20 minutes

Teachers teach a concept Children read as a group/individually/out loud/take turns etc Teacher makes notes on each child Teacher writes title of book in reading diary Shared Reading Children read in a whole class group Teacher reads with group five times a week

Each session lasts for 20 minutes Teaching is based on the general needs for the children in the class BUT teachers plan for different groups of children through questions In the 20 minutes

Review phonemes that will occur in the book Review common exception words that will occur in the book Read some of the text in unison Read some of the text individually with the teacher listening to them read Answer comprehension questions either written or oral

Teacher is able to plan any changes for the lesson the following day Different Types of Books Reading Scheme Books Are written with the sole purpose of teaching reading They are used as a gateway to reading the means to an end MUST run alongside real books

Chosen to match a childs reading ability Often link directly to phonics teaching Often have prompts for adults reading with the child Are sometimes written by notable authors eg Julia Donaldson Are used for individual reading in Reception and shared reading in Year One Are available online through the Bug Club resources to read at home. Bug Club Active Learn Primary

www.oxfordowl.co.uk Real Books Are written with the purpose of entertaining the reader The aim of becoming a reader Are appealing to different levels of reader Contain the features of key texts for teaching reading

Encourage favourites Are chosen by children for the illustrations or the themes Are chosen by the children to read for enjoyment Current Teaching in our Year Groups The Current Position in Reception Children do shared reading every day using the Bug Club Books online

Children learn phonics every day in a discrete session Children read individually with the teacher once a week for about five minutes. Children read throughout the day as part of ongoing continuous activities eg in the book corner, in the role play area, on the story telling chair, in the small world etc. Children bring home one scheme book plus one real book Bug Club books will soon be allocated electronically

The Current Position in Years One and Two Children do shared reading every day using the Bug Club Books online Children learn phonics every day as part of the reading session Children read individually within the shared reading session Children read throughout the day as part of ongoing continuous activities eg in the book corner, in the role play area, on the story

telling chair, in the small world etc. Children bring home one scheme book (online) and two real books Reasons for Changes in Key Stage One Since October we have been doing BOTH shared reading and guided reading In a recent phase meeting where all ten teachers were present, we

agreed that, in our experience, the most progress had been seen as a result of shared reading 20 minutes per group once a week is not generating us as much progress as 20 minutes per class per day Guided Reading books have not always been read at home and are not returned, we have many incomplete sets of books Reading diaries have often not been commented in Research shows that shared reading is the most effective method of

teaching reading in class Shared reading can:

Improve childrens motivation to read Improve their vocabulary Improve the likelihood of a child choosing to read independently Improve writing ability Expose children to a wider variety of texts

Enhance childrens understanding of a text Enhance childrens socio-emotional development Before (per week) Now (per week)

5 minutes reading time with the teacher per child I hour and 40 minutes reading time with the teacher as a class (every child has the opportunity to read out loud and answer questions on the text)

Bringing home 2 books Bringing home 2 books a week and assigned an online book to read Reading at Home

Reading at Home - For Learning The book from the teacher is a form of homework and should be read at an appropriate time for learning Children should be expected to concentrate and actively engage in reading the book Children should be encouraged to read the text that they have been given. They should be encouraged to sound out words that the do not know

Adults may ask questions about the text, maybe from the back of the book itself, or from the list of questions provided Reading at Home For Pleasure Children should have the opportunity to share a book with a family member every night before they go to bed. This time should be enjoyable and relaxing before bedtime and should form part of a bedtime routine.

The books should be chosen for enjoyment. Books could be chosen from home collections, the local library or the school library. Family members should share the book with the child by reading to them, or reading together. There should be no expectation of the child to do reading homework at bedtime. www.schoolreadinglist.co.uk (recommended books for year groups)
