We have started straight into our reading groups, where the children are mixed across the year group according to their reading ability. This ensures that children are supported and challenged where necessary.
We read 2 books a week, and also focus on a key sentence which has been cut up for us to rearrange. We also practice writing key words from the text.
The children also have the opportunity to hear the adults read every week too, as well as partnered reading. It’s always enjoyable and I’m very impressed with how quickly children progress.
