Reading for Pleasure
At Wymondham we want our children to become enthusiastic and engaged readers, and to develop a life-long love of books.
We introduce the children to a range of good quality fiction, non-fiction and poetry books through our whole-class, core-text approach to teaching reading, and during their weekly guided reading session.
In the early stages of reading, we teach children to decode words using phonic skills as their main approach, alongside we teach sight vocabulary using the Read Write Inc programme. Once grasped, the focus for developing reading is understanding and comprehension.
