Our WJS Reading Club

We have a rather unique way of teaching children to read with very successful results. We teach reading skills through our Reading Club system.

Throughout the school, from Years 3 – 6, the children are grouped according to their understanding of the key skills needed to understand the written word.

Teachers deliver high quality, whole-class teaching at an appropriate level for the children in their group. This occurs twice a week with each session lasting 40 minutes.

Within these sessions, pupils are taught strategies to help them read with understanding; locate and use information; follow a process or an argument; summarise and to synthesise and adapt what they learn from reading.

These lessons are taught in addition to our daily English lessons.
