Reading at West Drayton Academy
In our school, we have a wealth of books for the children to choose from. Our library is stocked with fiction, non-fiction and poetry; children have weekly opportunities to choose books. Mrs Abdullaj, our librarian, is always happy to help children and parents with book choices.
We have a range of reading schemes we use to help children at the earliest stages of reading. Oxford Reading Tree is one of our core reading schemes. The Oxford Owl website (https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/) has a wealth of information on:
- helping your child with reading;
- supporting your child with maths;
- explaining how we teach phonics;
- e-books to choose from;
- explaining the different assessments children take;
- and much more...
