Reading Scheme

readingschemes(3)132856-ml-536865(2)

Our youngest children begin their adventure in the world of reading with the aid of a reading scheme. This provides a structure, progressive approach with texts of increasing complexity to help build and develop reading skills.  We currently use a combination of two reading schemes to provide continuity, familiarity and variety. These are the Oxford Reading Tree scheme supplement with texts from the Rigby Star scheme.

The Oxford Reading Tree teaches reading through stories about the lives, experiences and adventures of a series of familiar characters such a Biff and Chip. The Rigby Star books provide children with opportunities to practice their skills in less familiar contexts including information, poetry and other story texts.
