Reading Mileage

Back to Reading

Home reading

Reading at home as frequently as possible is encouraged by individual class teachers, through Reading Stars, and through the ethos of the school. Pupils are welcome to read any type of reading material, although reading scheme books are encouraged. No sanctions are in place for pupils who do not read frequently as this would be likely to negatively affect their perception of reading.

Shared reading

Shared reading takes place with the teacher explicitly modelling the skills of proficient readers, including reading with fluency and expression.

Paired reading

Pupils read multiple times a week with a partner, enjoying books together and supporting each others’ learning.

Reading to teachers

Teachers listen to pupils read as frequently as possible, especially during library sessions and paired reading sessions. Pupils working below or towards age-related expectations are prioritised.

Reading to teaching assistants

Teaching assistants listen to pupils read as frequently as possible. Pupils working below or towards age-related expectations are prioritised.

Reading to volunteers

Volunteers are actively sought to listen to pupils read, especially in lower school. Pupils working below or towards age-related expectations are prioritised.

Peer tutoring

Peer tutoring has been introduced in Year 6 with very strong readers modelling effective reading, assisting tutees with their own reading, and then posing questions about the text read.
