Reading is an important part of everyday life and here at The Linden Centre, we encourage a love of reading. We support reading daily with two reading sessions.
Our morning reading session is a whole class reader from Ks1-4. We have found a number of texts which we would like all children to be familiar with including authors such as Roald Dahl and Michael Morpurgo.
The morning session is read for pleasure and is a text read by the tutor group as a whole. This means that an adult might read to the children or a class member may be reading on that day but it is for your child to be able to enjoy the text.
The second session of reading each day is a free reader. On this session, your child will be accessing a text which is age appropriate for their reading age with a little challenge. Children should be able to decode around 80% of the text in order that they can read and comprehend what they are reading.
We encourage further reading wit your child at home as part of their daily reading time and extended learning.
