Whole Class Book 

Every class in KS1 and KS2 has a whole class read which may be a longer novel read over a period of time, or a daily picture book. Each day, the class teacher will read the whole class book for at least 10 minutes as an essential part of our approach to reading. It is one way that we can model our enthusiasm for reading, for books and to create magic and excitement around the special joy of reading a good book. Our books are selected to develop children's vocabulary, broaden their understanding of a concept, or to enthuse a love for reading. Very often the class book is linked to the curriculum the children are studying, either through their Big Question, or a specific subject area. 


Accelerated Reader 

Once children have completed Read, Write Inc, our phonics scheme, they are moved onto Accelerated Reader.
