Reading Scheme

At Westfield Infant School pupils learn to read using a wide variety of phonic based books published by Oxford University Press. All of the books are banded according to levels which the teachers closely monitor. Along side these 'Teacher Choice' books pupils have the opportunity to select from a huge choice of  'Children's Choice' books from other publishers to broaden their reading experience. The 'Pupils Choice' books are also banded according to levels. 


The children read weekly with their English Teacher or Learning Support Assistant. These adults will change your child's 'Teacher Choice' book regularly. It would be great if you could read with your child as often as you can at home and record in their contact books when you do. If you feel your child is ready for a new book before they read in school you are welcome to come in and help your child change their 'Children's Choice' book at the end of the day. If you need any help with this please see your child's Class or English teacher.
