At Abingdon we use ‘The Reading Gems’ in our reading lessons. This is an approach to teaching Reading which includes the teaching and applying of skills needed to become a fluent and resilient reader.
We believe that the teaching of Reading should include more than an awareness of the skills they need in order for them to be successful in primary school but to also develop skills that will last a lifetime.
The Reading Gems is an approach which ensures the application of reading skills are fundamental to the understanding of what is being read.
