Early Reading at Booker Hill

Early Reading

We have been very successful in raising the results of our phonics screening check and then maintaining the high level again this year.

 

Phonics Screening Check 2017

Phonics Screening Check Results for 2017

Percentage of Pupils Achieving the Required Standard

(National figures TBC)

Year 1

89.3% (2016 National: 81%)

Year 2 - Cumulative

100% (2016 National: 91%)

 The key to this success has been:

 

  •  A well chosen, finely graded reading scheme with a lot of repetition in the early levels and a high level of repetition of the early high frequency words.
  • Workshops for parents of pupils in Nursery and Reception class. In these workshops we explain the methods used to teach reading in our school. Workshops are followed by 1:2:1 tuition sessions for each child which parents are invited to attend.
  • Pupils receive book introductions from school staff and parents for every book that is taken home, as the use of  meaning and structure are very important to the reading process.
  • Daily phonics instruction to give pupils the visual information necessary in the reading process. This involves attention to the letters, phonic rules and being able to blend phonemes into words,       recognising high frequency words at speed and applying what they know to something new.
  • Emphasis being placed on familiar reading with the aim being for children to read independently, fluently, with understanding and for enjoyment.
