Reading at Witton


 

Accelerated Reader

Here at Witton Middle School, we recently introduced Accelerated Reader. This a computer based program where the children are involved in a cycle of reading and quizzing. What makes this such an effective program is that the children are given a very specific range of books to read which allows all of them to be successful and make progress. This program is tracked weekly by class teachers to identify children who are making full use of it and to offer support to those who are finding it more challenging.

Guided Reading

Each week, during daily guided reading sessions, children have the opportunity to read with an adult as well as tackle some spelling, punctuation and grammar. To enable this to be successful, children are grouped with other children who have similar strengths and areas for development. In addition to this they spend 3 days reading and quizzing using the Accelerated Reader program.

Reading across the Curriculum

Naturally, reading is not confined to English lessons. In order to support this, we have a selection of reading materials based on topics across the curriculum.

Witton IS a Reading School

We encourage reading in a range of forms at every possible opportunity. Children should always have a book with them in school! Thanks for your support with this and do let us know if you would like to volunteer to hear reading in school.
