Reading is a massive part of what we do here at Reevy Hill and we would like our children to not only learn to read, but also have a real love of books, stories and poems.
We love our school library and we're very proud of what it represents. It has some amazing books and interactive displays. We especially love getting comfy in the woodland area to share our favourite stories.
We are working hard on our reading in school and the more we read at home and at school, the more badges we earn and rewards we achieve.
The children at Reevy Hill have been set a challenge by Miss Lamb to take pictures of themselves reading in the most exciting places possible. Come back soon to see the pictures of our super readers!
At the end of every day, we enjoy a story as a class. We call this TRIC (Teacher Reading In Class) and it is an opportunity to listen to some of our favourite stories, join in with rhymes and actions or hear an amazing poem being read aloud. Come back soon for pictures and videos of not just the teachers in our school sharing stories, but the children too...
Initially, our children learn to read through daily phonics sessions. They are interactive and engaging lessons which help pupils learn specific sounds to read words. Have a look at some of our phonics learning here...
