Whole Academy Reading Strategy

Lexonik and Read, Reflect and Review

Our whole school reading strategy is designed to provide pupils with consistent opportunities to read varied and high-quality reading material. Three groups are responsible for the reading development of our pupils:

The English department provides the opportunity to read challenging and interesting texts in the literary heritage strand of the curriculum. The focus is on reading full texts and gaining knowledge of character, plot and context. The results is that pupils can speak and write confidently and analytically about the texts they have read. We also offer KS3 pupils a weekly “reading for pleasure” lesson, to foster a love of reading. In these lessons, pupils experience reading full novels at pace in a guided environment. Our selection of class readers is varied and engaging to grip young readers. In this strand there is a focus on the explicit teaching of new vocabulary and an exploration of social, emotional and cultural issues.

Every member of staff at Haughton Academy is responsible for providing high quality reading opportunities. Our “Read, Reflect and Review” process means that every subject provides an extended guided reading activity once per half term. We choose high quality texts, suited to the reading ability of pupils in each class. This gives pupils the chance to read outside of their curriculum, acquiring new knowledge and vocabulary.

Every pupil in Haughton Academy is responsible for their own reading. Pupils complete personal reading at home and reflect on this with teachers in school. Our fantastic library facilities and librarian can offer support in selecting appropriate and exciting novels and non-fiction texts to read at home.
