For the children in KS1 (Years 1 and 2), reading books are colour banded according to their level. The children are benchmarked termly to ensure that they are being taught at the correct level. In KS2 (Years 3-6), the children’s reading books come from the Accelerated Reading scheme. This scheme has a focus on comprehension as well as reading skills.
Guided Reading sessions are used to teach the children to read. In Foundation stage children have one session per week and in Key Stages 1 & 2, they have two sessions per week.
