How to Support Reading
You may have heard about Bookflix in school, it is our new, robust and dynamic approach to teaching the skills needed for reading comprehension, leading to the children having a much greater understanding of what they have read.
Below are three documents that list the skills we use in school to teach reading (their names, symbols and an explanation).
The documents are for Years 1 &2, Years 3 & 4 and Years 5 & 6. The skills build throughout school and the application is through more complex texts.
The children use these skills daily in class so please do feel free to discuss them further with your child when you're looking at a text, you may also wish to have a go at trying some of them together!
