Reading at School

Children develop their reading skills in school in many different ways:

  • As a whole class with the same text
  • As an individual choosing library books to read
  • As a member of an ability group in guided reading sessions
  • As an individual with a teacher or teaching assistant
  • As an individual with a reading partner in another class
  • As an individual with a Better Reading Partner (Adult support) (Selected Children only)


The emphasis in school is that we are teaching children the mechanics and comprehension skills at levels matched to their abilities.
