Guided Reading and Whole Class Reading
Guided Reading sessions take place for EYFS and Year 1 pupils, where they read together in a group and discuss what has happened and what will happen next. Alongside the skills of decoding and comprehension, discussion of texts encourages children to think as a reader and discuss their preferences, likes and dislikes.
Whole Class reading sessions take place from Year 2 to Year 6, where pupils focus on the different skills through a variety of texts and media. They allow all pupils to access high-quality texts and answers.
It is our intention that by the end of their primary education all pupils are able to read fluently and with confidence, in any subject in their forthcoming secondary education.
At Mercenfeld, we are continually seeking to build a community of readers and set aside time each day for staff to read aloud to each class.
