Reading is important and high profile at Walliscote.
Our reading programme is made up of levelled books from various schemes and is designed to give children experience of a variety of reading genres.
Our schemes used are from Nelson PM Books, Rigby Star Lighthouse,
Storyworlds, Ginn, Sails (foundation books) and Collins Big Cat. There are
fiction and non-fiction books within each level and children are encouraged
to also select books for pleasure from their classrooms.
We have a comic borrowing scheme so that children who enjoy different
types of reading are catered for too. Recently we have purchased a
selection of e-books which the children will be able to access both at
school and at home.
The Phonics into Early Spelling programme is run in school to teach phonics, with
Jolly Phonics to support the teaching of it
