8 Phonics and Word Recognition Reading requires two key skillsUnderstandingThe ability to understand the meaning of the words and sentences in a text.The ability to understand the ideas, information and themes in a text.If a child understands what they hear, they will understand the same information when they read.Phonics and Word RecognitionThe ability to recognise words presented in and out of context.The ability to blend letter sounds (phonemes) together to read words.

10 Reading in School The Teaching of Reading PhonicsGuided readingIndependent readingFocused reading activitiesReading across the curriculumClass novels and storiesThe hearing of reading is NOT the teaching of reading
11 What we do if a child is stuck Use phonics first. What sound does the word begin with? Can you say the sounds in the word? Blend them together.Read to the end of the sentence. What would make sense?What is the text about – what might fit here?Does it sound right?Look at the picture. Does it help?
12 Accelerated Reader ARAR – begins in year 3 – ch. work through this during the rest of the schooling.Move from decodingStar test – initially – gives us a reading band for the ch. to read books from.Each book is levelledRead the book – then they sit an AR quiz on the computer.If they get 100% three times they move up to the next level.If the ch. get a low score they re-read the book and then sit another test.Each book also has its own amount of points.The ch. are targets – to reach a certain number or points – or certification level.Certification levels:They achieve these certificates by reading a certain number of books in a level or scoring a certain number of points.These certification levels can be assessed from home. Also from home you can see how well your child has done and when they have sat quizzes.Points availableBook level
13 Reading AFsAF1 – use a range of strategies, including accurate decoding of text, to read for meaningAF2 – understand, describe, select or retrieve information, events or ideas from texts and use quotation and reference to textAF3 – deduce, infer or interpret information, events or ideas from textsAF4 – identify and comment on the structure and organisation of texts, including grammatical and presentational features at text levelAF5 – explain and comment on writers’ use of language, including grammatical and literary features at word and sentence levelAF6 – identify and comment on writers’ purposes and viewpoints, and the overall effect of the text on the readerAF7 – relate texts to their social, cultural and historical traditionsThere are seven strands to reading assessments.These range from decoding, to retrieval of information and analysing the authors language.We cover these in school in guided reading sessions, 1:1 reading, independent reading and comprehension lessons.Often during registration in KS2 once the children have read they will answer an AF question.Children record their AR results and independent AF questions in blue books which are kept in school.Many of the AR questions focus on retrieval of information.You can find examples of AF questions on the tables.
15 Cursive Handwriting Taught across the school Research has shown that cursive writing improves spellingConsulted many schools and carried out researchThe British dyslexia foundationA lot of research was done with students with disabilities. Mainly dyslexic children. Learning to write in cursive has helped them learn to spellThe most widely recommended handwriting style is called continuous cursive. Its most important feature is that each letter is formed without taking the pencil off the paper – and consequently, each word is formed in one, flowing movement.The key advantages to this system are:By making each letter in one movement, children’s hands develop a ‘physical memory’ of it, making it easier to produce the correct shape;Because letters and words flow from left to right, children are less likely to reverse letters which are typically difficult (like b/d or p/q);There is a clearer distinction between capital letters and lower case;The continuous flow of writing ultimately improves speed and spelling.
