Reading at Oakridge
Here at Oakridge, we believe that reading is a vital life skill and work hard to promote its value. We have a bespoke reading progression grid to support our pupil’s with reading skills as we strongly believe that reading empowers our children with knowledge.
Reading is a fundamental skill and here at Oakridge we work hard to ensure that we provide as many opportunities for reading. Time is allocated in the timetable for all classes to have Reading for Pleasure sessions, as we believe, pupils who read for pleasure make significantly more progress in vocabulary and spelling than children who read very little. We run annual bingo challenges and reading competitions to promote reading. All classrooms include unique reading corners to inspire pupils to read. Reading skills are taught through the use of VIPERS (Vocabulary, Infer, Predication, Explain, Retrieve and Summary).
