Our reading scheme
At Holy Family School we use The Oxford Reading Tree as our main scheme. Mixed in with this we have books from many other schemes intended to broaden the children's reading experience at every level. Children move through the reading scheme at various rates, reading more, or fewer books from each level according to their own personal reading development. Your child's teacher will always be happy to provide more information about how we teach reading at Holy Family.
In year four, we have guided reading every week practising reading and comprehension skills. The children are encouraged to read five times a week at home and are given a certificate if they can achieve this. If they achieve this four times in the month they are the reader of the month.
