At Anglesey, we are a vibrant and nurturing school community, where children are given the skills to become, inquisitive, resilient, independent learners. Our curriculum provides a range of creative, challenging and inspiring experiences for all. This equips our children with the life skills to be happy, flourish and be successful...Today, tomorrow and in the future
The schools total attendance is currently at:91.1% (Since September 2020)
At Anglesey, we use Reading VIPERS throughout school to teach reading skills through 6 key areas:
Sequence or Summarise
Every child will experience a full range of reading experiences during their time in school from reading with an adult 1-2-1, reading in small groups of similar ability children and as part of a whole class lesson.
Our younger children in EYFS and KS1 will read routinely as individuals with an adult in a 1-2-1 session. This will allow adults to attend to the needs of the individual child. Some children in KS2 will also continue to have this support.
Small Group sessions will focus on reading a text suited to the children in the group which allows them to develop decoding, prosody and comprehension skills.
Whole Class reading will allow children to all read a text matched to the expected level for their year group. Again, within this lesson children will have the opportunity to read independently and work on comprehension skills.
We also use Oxford Reading Buddy, an online service to help support children with their reading at home. Children have individual logins that help them access hundreds of Oxford books and quizzes, all matched to their level.
Oxford Reading Buddy works on smartphones as well as computers and tablets. Click the link below to login or look at the Parents Guides for more information.
Reading Scheme in KS1
In KS1 the children work through the Collins Big Cat Phonics-Letters and Sounds books in school during reading groups.
