Class Reading

'Drawing club' and 'The Write Stuff'

We will be following both of the above writing schemes throughout the year. Introducing the children to exciting new books and vocabulary and encouraging their love for language and mark making/writing.

Choose books from different categories

Cosy Club Reading Books

Each term we will choose books to focus on reading and enjoying with the children.

By focusing on a collection of books we can allow the children to understand the books in real depth; they will learn new vocabulary, be able to predict what comes next and really engage in the story giving them confidence in their early reading skills.
