How we teach reading
We have fully implemented the Read Write Inc approach to teaching reading.
The children are taught phonics in school using a range of interactive, structure methods.
The approach is consistent in each class and has proven to be very successful here at Copeland Road with much improved reading results including 95% pass rate in the Year 1 phonics test.
Information is regularly shared with parents, please visit the parent information page Read Write Inc.
Reading for Pleasure
The children at Copeland Road love to read, from Reception to Year 6 every child is encouraged to read for pleasure. We recognise that reading is so important and reading a wide range of texts can improve the quality of children’s writing. The children designed book covers, wrote blurbs around their favourite stories and also wrote about why they enjoyed a particular book.
