Reading at Gunness and Burringham C of E Primary School



At Gunness and Burringham Primary School, reading is an integral part of the school curriculum. In the Foundation Stage children have access to a wide range of high quality, multi-sensory reading resources. Through daily story times, rhymes and the continuous indoor and outdoor provision, children are immersed in a language-rich environment.
In the Foundation Stage and Key Stage One reading is taught daily through the Read, Write, Inc Programme which incorporates shared, guided and individual activities. Children each have reading books from the matching book-banded scheme and are encouraged to borrow topic books from the library to share at home. 



The Foundation Stage and Key Stage One are equipped with a reading area, where children can read for pleasure.
In Years 2 to Year 6, all children have access to a high quality reading scheme which is colour banded matched to National expectations and age-related expectations.



Children continue to take home reading books and library books and have access to a range of high quality books in the classroom, which are chosen from the National recommended reading lists. 

Our school continuously promotes a love of reading through engaging, age-appropriate class texts which the children read together and which are linked to termly class topics. These texts also link to Literacy sessions.
