Reading

Here you will find a list of books that you can read with your child and ways to support them.

READING COORDINATOR : GRETA ATTRIDGE

We believe that a close partnership with parents is essential for children to benefit most from their time at Jewell Academy.

In this section of our website you will find lots of useful information and links.

READING IN SCHOOL

Children have one colour-banded book which suits their level of reading. They will be able to select any text from this colour band and will be moved to a different colour when their teacher judges them ready.

Every child will be heard read individually at least once a week by the class teacher or another adult in school. In addition, they have guided reading sessions with the teacher once a week. A record of their progress will be kept and targets discussed with the child.

Children will bring home their reading book every day along with a reading record. We ask that you find 5 –10 minutes a day to spend reading with your child and that you make a comment in their reading record.
