My child has strong foundations - what next? 

The "Wings"  reading programme is for children with a reading age 7.0 years and above. It supports and challenges basic and more competent readers, engaging them in a variety of fiction, non-fiction and poetry texts, encouraging reading for pleasure and reading for information. Year 6 also have access to a consolidation programme to support their reading before national testing.

Whilst developing word-reading and comprehension through high quality teaching is the priority for our reading school, every teacher being an advocate for reading through developing the children’s love of reading and books and the desire to read is intertwined closely with learning to read.


Teachers share knowledge about authors and books, the language of books, reading stamina and how to choose books.

To support this, for a minimum of twice a week, students will have a ‘stop everything and pick up a book’ time, reading a book of their choice in quiet. Teachers will support this by having their own book out. English teachers will support students in making book choices and monitor their progress through texts. Every child is benchmarked for their reading age and stage and provided with an appropriate book. Across the curriculum, students will have the opportunity to read non-fiction articles relating to each subject area. 

We have made a significant investment in books relating to the different curriculum areas as well as reading for pleasure in the development of its school library. This will broaden students’ understanding of the world around them and introduce them to key vocabulary needed to become fluent readers.

Finally, throughout the year, teachers will share novels, opening chapters, articles and non-fiction with their class from a reading spine to promote reading as widely as possible.
