Reading at James Brindley

Children at James Brindley love reading. As a school, we work hard to nurture a love for reading.
We ensure that children get to read and hear a wide range of genres as part of our holistic approach to reading for pleasure.
 

On this page you will find a number of helpful documents. The 'Recommended Reads' section has a number of books that are suitable for children in each age group. The books come recommended by a number of teachers and literary experts. As ever, we recommend that parents check they are happy that the content is suitable for their child.

 

The 'Developing reading comprehension at home' section contains two documents. The first document is suitable for children of all ages and will guide parents in how to assist their own child in developing good comprehension skills when listening to them read at home. It details a large number of useful question types that are perfect to check and assess that your child has understood their book and can retrieve information from it.  The 'Blooms Taxonomy' document describes how older, more mature readers can be challenged to analyse a text in a number of different ways. 

 

At the bottom of the page, a video per year group shows some of the lessons our children have gleamed from our rich literary environment.
We hope you will enjoy watching them.
