Our curriculum at Jubilee Park Academy has been designed to ensure that children learn to read fluently, understand extended comprehension, and be encouraged to read for pleasure.
These competences are developed through the range of reading genres they study in EYFS, KS1 and KS2, through our RWI phonics scheme, our reading overviews and in our ‘drop, everything and read’ sessions (DEAR). Our classrooms have a selection of quality reading books that have been specifically identified to develop reading for pleasure. Book recommendations are used daily to share our passion for reading. Our school library will be a vibrant and inclusive atmosphere for our school providing a large range of quality resources. Additionally, afterschool book clubs are planned to raise the profile of reading.
At Jubilee Park Academy we aim to:
The teaching of reading at Jubilee Park Academy is delivered through daily phonic sessions, following Ruth Miskin Read Write Inc in EYFS and Key Stage One and daily reading lessons in Year two to six. Children in the foundation stage and Key Stage One, develop phonological awareness and phonic knowledge following the Read Write Inc programme through daily phonics teaching.
In Key Stage Two, phonics is taught through tailored interventions by teachers and teaching assistants. Through our reading lessons the children develop oracy skills and broaden their vocabulary choices, whilst deepening their understanding of an author’s voice through book talk and vocabulary sessions. In addition, children will deepen their reading skills through using the lenses of vocabulary, inferencing, predicting, explaining, summarising and sequencing, VIPERS taught to the children.
At Jubilee Park Academy we aim to ensure that our reading provision is clear and consistent to all our pupils. We endeavour to foster of a love of reading so that children enjoy a wide range of stories and books daily whilst at school and at home. We aim to develop a reading culture at Jubilee Park Academy and ensure reading is a priority for leaders, teachers, children, and parents.
