Church of England Academy


In our Academy we teach Read, Write Inc throughout Reception and Year 1 including Year 2 in the Autumn term. At this point the children will continue their reading journey using Reciprocal Reading, which is a structured whole class reading approach. Throughout this approach the children work together to make predictions, clarify vocabulary, ask questions about the text type and summerise to deepen their understanding and their independent comprehension skills. This is taught throughout Key Stage 2. 



Reading for pleasure is highly valued within our school. We understand the importance of promoting a love of Reading for our children ensuring they have many opportunities to have a range of text types read to them for pure enjoyment. At Leverton we have dedicated DEAR time - Drop Everything And Read - at the end of the school day for 15 minutes. These texts are chosen to support a developing reader to ensure they are exposed to a range of language, vocabulary and plots which will also support them navigate reading with confidence.
