At Outwoods Edge, we value reading as an essential life skill. We are determined that each and every child will learn to read. We endeavour to ensure that our children become confident readers with the skills to both decode and comprehend effectively. Each child will have the opportunity to read a wide range of genres resulting in motivated readers that have both a thirst for reading and are inspired to read for pleasure.

From Foundation, we start by teaching reading and systematic phonics through Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised. Moving into Years 2 and 3, there is an increased focus on comprehension strategies. We focus on modelling ‘What a good reader does’. In upper KS2, we delve deeper into what a good reader does, combining a wide range of strategies. For more information, please see the document below.

Our Reading Lead is Mrs Hayley Seville. Please make an appointment to see her if you would like any further information about the teaching of reading at Outwoods Edge.
