Here at Parkside School we promote reading with verbal praise, encouragement and reward.  When pupils’ bookmarks are full they are presented with a Good Reading Certificate in our Friday Show ‘n’ Tell assembly.

The main reading scheme that we use is Oxford Reading Tree which feature settings and situations most children will find familiar. The books have complete stories and help pupils develop word recognition and language comprehensions skills.

Oxford Reading Tree is supplemented by Dandelion books and other series to embed vocabulary and phonic progression and give a variety.

We are regularly sourcing and refreshing reading books to help support our pupils’ enjoyment and learning.
