Reading Schemes – Bug Club

We as a school believe in the importance in learning to read and write but most importantly, developing and fostering a love of books.

All classes have daily shared and guided reading sessions and a reading corner where pupils are encouraged to develop their own interests and choose books for pleasure.

All pupils take part in daily Phonics lessons following the Government’s ‘Letters and Sounds’ programme and when ready, children are taught to read using phonically decodable books through the ‘Bug Club’ reading scheme. Pupils are able to read these books both in school and at home by taking copies of the books home or by accessing them electronically on a computer, laptop or tablet using their individual password. Workshops will be provided for parents wishing to support their children with this, in the Autumn Term.
