At Abingdon, we want all children to have the experience of reading whole texts, experiencing a range of genres - many of which are reflective of our community - and to travel the world through literature.
We have a reading model that runs throughout our school:
Read, Write, Inc. - phonics and reading programme in EYFS and KS1 (some children may continue to access in Y3 or 4)
Reading Gems - all children who are secure in their phonics move onto studying the content domains by collecting reading gems! This incorporates vocabulary from the rest of the curriculum.
Abingdon Reading Spine - ALL children will access these books. For more information click on the document below.
Narrative Immersion Texts - children will experience teaching throug key texts whereby teachers will use books as the vehicle through which to deliver much of their curriculum content.
Abingdon Book Challenge - ALL children are encouraged to join in our Book Challenge. They receive recognition when they have read a certain number of books and children of ANY age can join at ANY time of year. Click on the document below to see our current Book Challenge list.
