Reading and Phonics Schemes:


Reading in school and at home:

We work really hard as a school to promote reading at home as it is vitally important that children have the opportunity to do so. Reading links to so many different areas of school and particularly impacts on children's writing. At Smawthorne Henry Moore we follow a set system where children earn stamps in their planners for reading at home. These stamps are added up and relate to a range of certificates based on the number of times read at home, each certificate has a prize with it.  


In school children have many opportunities to read such as reading independently for a morning activity, reading one to one with an adult and reading within a guided reading group. We aim to promote a love of reading through these opportunities which we hope impacts on all areas of education for our children.
