Creating a strong reading culture here at Oldfield is so important to us. We are passionate about fostering a love of reading with our children so they become fluent and confident readers as they grow up. We have recently overhauled our reading scheme and invested in new books, from Nursery to Year 6. We use a range of quality schemes to ensure children are offered a wide choice when learning to read. We have also heavily invested in new books to promote reading for pleasure. We simply want all our children to have a life-long love of reading. Please see the main English page for how reading is embedded into our curriculum. Below are some ways you can support your child with reading at home. Take a look below at some high quality book recommendations for your child.
We recognise it can feel a little daunting knowing which books to choose for your child. We encourage children to read a wide variety of genres. It's good to try new text types to broaden experiences and understanding, not to mention providing new opportunities to learn unfamiliar vocabulary. Please get in touch with your child's class teacher if you would like any personalised recommendations for your child. We are more than happy to help!
