Love of Reading

Love of Reading

In Clarendon Infants School, we believe in sharing a love of reading for all children. To inspire this, we use the Pie Corbett Reading Spine to develop children's exposure to different texts. Throughout the day, the children are given opportunities to explore, discuss and immerse themselves in different books. All children are given the opportunity to visit the library and see new books they might not have discovered before. Also, we hold regular reading days where the children can explore and share their new favourite books!

 

Reading at School

At Clarendon Infants School, we are incredibly lucky to have different areas for the children to explore reading. We have a library full of interesting books which every child is able to explore. Also, each classroom has an exciting book corner full of books for the children to access during provision.

Reading at Home

At Clarendon Infants School, al the children are given a high quality text to take home with them and read at home. This not only allows the children to develop their phonetic awareness but it also provides them time to develop a love of reading. Each child has a reading record which is used to record their home reading. We then have a reading tree which celebrates every time a child reads for 25 days and their apple moves across the tree over the year. 

 

Also, we encourage the children to read at home and find their new favourite book through the use of Reading Competitions.
