Reading for pleasure remains a priority during KS2. We encourage our pupils to foster a love for reading, develop personal interests in different genres and have exposure to a wide range of authors and texts, means that our pupils have a balanced and healthy reading diet.
Children continue to be taught specific reading skills in Key Stage Two. Most children will be developing higher levels of fluency, language and comprehension skills. Some children may still require phonics based teaching and they will receive teaching to secure the SSP knowledge and skills necessary to be a fluent reader. Reading lessons include Echo Reading, Reciprocal Reading, whole class Guided Reading and group guided reading sessions. Pupils will continue to be read to in reading aloud sessions each day and will develop skills in peer-to -peer reading. Pupils are taught to respond to texts both orally and in written form so that they develop higher level inference, comprehension and language skills.
