Reading at Waterside

Reading is what we love to do!


At Waterside we love to hear our pupils develop their reading!  We us Read Write Ink to develop our phonics with the aim pupils will eventually become free readers! 


Our super heroes make huge progress with both their reading ages (most making a minimum of 10 months progress within an academic year and some, making over 3 years progress!) and their comprehension, which has unlocked a love and desire for reading.


Our pupils also access our school library and have recently started reading to members of our community via the Silver Readers initiative which we are really excited about.


Every week, some of our super heroes make a call to a member of the community where they chat about their week and then read part of their reading book to them. Some of our books are quite in-depth so the story can go on for some time!

This is an invaluable resource and gives our super heroes a clear understanding of the joy of reading for pleasure.
