At Bridgeview we ensure pupils read individually, in small groups and as a whole class. A variety of different genres, both fiction and non-fiction, are chosen at an appropriate level of ability for each child. As well as being able to read the text, children are encouraged to discuss the book, expressing their individual opinions of the content. More able readers will be asked to compare the themes and speculate on the tone of different texts.
We use a range of literature from a variety of reading schemes including Bug Club, Project X and Read, Write Inc. We also encourage children to select their own books from the class libraries and welcome suggestions regarding the texts they would like to read in future.
