Reading Development at Hurdsfield
We are developing the way we teach reading at Hurdsfield and would like to share with you some of the websites and resources we use in school to support your children's reading for meaning and pleasure.
At Hurdsfield, we are developing our reading teaching to ensure that we provide our children with a healthy reading 'diet'. We aim to provide a structured approach to this learning through Whole Class Reading sessions, 1:1 reading sessions, Class Novels (linked to our curriculum enquiries) and Guided Sessions. All of these sessions link with our overall drive to promote Reading for Pleasure for all pupils!
Early Reading Development at Hurdsfield
At Hurdsfield, we teach early reading in the following ways:
V = Vocabulary
Ensuring our children understand the meaning of the words they mean in context supplemented by daily word aware sessions.
I = Inference
Being able to infer actions, thoughts and feelings using their understanding of the text and their wider experiences.
P = Prediction
Using evidence from what they have read and what they understand to predict what will happen next and how this will affect the plot of the narrative.
E = Explain
Use evidence to explain their answers to specific questions
R = Retrieve
Find information from a text quickly to support wider learning.
S = Summarise
Accurately pick out the main events and succinctly summarise these for a wider audience.
