What WE do to help your child's reading

The skill of reading is modelled and promoted in every lesson at Canning Street. Furthermore, every single class has a golden 15 minutes at the end of the day in order for the class to enjoy a story together. Here are some of the ways we support your children in their reading journeys:

Shared Reading: This is a carefully structured lesson that is taught three times a week in ALL classes. This allows children to share and analyse a challenging text, while learning and practising the keys skills of reading, such as deduction and inference.

One to One Reading: In years 2 and below, all children read one a 1:1 basis with an adult AT LEAST twice a week. Our skilled support assistants know how to extend children's thinking and support their understanding.

Phonics Lessons: ALL classes in years 2 and below have a daily phonics session. Phonics are the sounds that help us read and build words. Our staff are highly trained in delivering phonics. 

Author Visits: We are sometimes lucky enough to be visited by published authors. They come and speak to us about their inspiration and ideas, which our children always love. We would love to see a Canning Street child publish a book one day....
