Power of Reading
Our power of reading text in Foundation stage is The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson. We will be immersing ourselves into Gruffalo world and offering lots of opportunities to tell the story and recreate the different scenarios that we read.
Our launch day on the 13th November was a huge hit and we had to follow clues left by … The Gruffalo himself. We will celebrate the end of this topic by making Gruffalo crumble and singing a song about the friendly hairy beast!
We are noticing a huge difference with children who are regularly reading at home. Our daily phonics sessions and reading at home is making sure that all of our children are off to a flying start with their reading journey. Adults in school read with them regularly in F2 and children in F1 bring home books to share with you on a weekly basis .
Reading books for F2 are sent home on a Monday and staff regularly check who is reading 5 times a week. Children who read 5 times a week are entered into a prize draw and drawn in our whole school assemblies.
