At Jubilee Academy we are committed to encouraging children to read for fun, and we take part in several programs throughout the year including Read For My School where children can go online and log the books they have read. Reading helps children with their writing, and also with all of their other subjects, so please support us by reading with your child at home.
In Foundation Stage and KS1 children are taught using Jolly Phonics, which helps them to learn how to read and write their letters and sounds. In KS1 the Rigby Star reading scheme is used as a series of graduated ability books to promote enjoyable reading which is also educational. Reading A-Z is used across the school along with Wordsmith and Lexia to promote reading and support skills.
A mixture of guided reading and whole class reading is used to build upon this basis and encourage confident and fluent reading. Reading texts are linked to writing topics, which also aids comprehension work and understanding of reading materials.
