At Foxhill Primary school, we believe that the ability to read confidently, fluently and with understanding is an essential life skill, which will not only empower the individual to make sense of his or her world, but will also grant access to a vast realm of experience and knowledge that would otherwise remain out of reach. It is our mission to ensure every child develops an enjoyment of reading and can employ a range of independent strategies to self-monitor and improve. It is important that a positive attitude towards reading is encouraged amongst all our pupils in order to foster self-confidence and a sense of achievement.
Children in keystage 2 earn points for reading. Every time they get a signature in their reading records from an adult at home they gain 1 point. They can spend these points at any point they choose or keep them until they decide to spend them at the school reading shop. Prizes and points are shown below.
What a brilliant morning we had at the 'Read A Long!' Thanks so much to all those parents that came along. We hope you found the information about reading/phonics in Reception, Year 1 and 2 useful and the reading packs come in handy at home too! It was brilliant to see so many of you get on board with our love for reading!
