At Monega we believe every child should be given the opportunity to learn to read, and develop a love for reading. We strive to develop this love for reading through exciting and engaging book choices used throughout the curriculum. In school, children have the opportunity to read every day, with Guided and Shared Reading lessons part of the weekly timetables. Additionally, teachers read to their class daily, modelling tone, intonation and fluency.
At Monega we believe it is important that children understand the journey of a book from the beginning to the end, to understand the author and characters fully. To ensure this happens, we have carefully selected ‘In-depth books’ to be completed as part of the school curriculum. These books tie into the written curriculum and are available for children to take home to re-read.
Each week children are given a book to read at home, along with a reading journal to be signed. The book is selected by the class teacher and is suitable to the child’s reading ability. Children also take a ‘Free Choice’ home reading book. This is a book that interests them and will promote a love for reading.
At Monega children are taught to read through Jolly Phonics. Phonics is taught daily and in EYFS children learn a new sound every day. Termly assessments allow the school to track the progress of each child.
