"Success is in the journey, not the destination; we are all learners"

READING AT ROBIN HOOD

In KS1 at Robin Hood, we want to foster a lifelong love and appreciation of reading in all our children. We celebrate pupils and classes who read regularly as we know that a love of reading develops children into inquisitive, informed and reflective individuals who can engage effectively with the world around them. All our children are exposed to a ‘Class Novel’ for 15-20 minutes per day as well as one 30-45 minute whole-class reading lesson.  

As well as this reading at school, we expect all children to read at home for at least 20 minutes a mini mum of 4times a week. This should be logged in their reading record on the day they have read with a brief comment about what they read. Please ensure your child’s planner is in school daily for their teacher to see. 

We link all our reading at school to VIPERS: 

VIPERS: Vocabulary - Inference - Prediction - Explain - Retrieval - Summarise / Sequence
