At Hope School we use the Ruth Miskins - Read, Write Inc. phonics programme to help develop the reading skills of our pupils.
We also use Project X for our guided reading sessions which we complete twice per week
Project X is a modern, whole-school reading and writing programme specially developed to motivate boys and address the gender gap in literacy. They include:-
At school we encourage reading for pleasure by having a book corner in each classroom as well as our school library, which has a range of books and magazines linked to children's interests. We also have Reading Ambassadors in each class who share their love of reading with their peers and encourage them to try different books. We hold special events celebrating different authors, such as Roald Dahl Day and World Book Day, and staff share their current reading interests with the children too.
We are lucky to have access to RM books, an online library with a wide selection of different reading materials. Each child has their own log in which is accessible from home, so ask your child/charge to show you what they are reading!
