At Rampton Primary School we recognise the importance of studying English as a subject in its own right and as a tool to access other curriculum areas. Improved performance in reading, writing and spoken language will enable our pupils to express their thoughts and ideas successfully in all curriculum subjects, while enriching their lives beyond school. Pupils will be given opportunities to develop their use, knowledge and understanding of spoken and written English within a broad and balanced curriculum, with opportunities to consolidate and reinforce taught literacy skills. We aim to promote high standards of literacy by providing pupils with a strong grasp of the spoken and written word, and to develop their love of literature through widespread reading for enjoyment.
Book Band Bookmarks
Below you will find bookmarks that can be printed off to support to your child when reading with them. They detail what the children should be able to do when reading a certain colour book band, provide advice on how to help children with their reading and offer sample questions that you can ask your children when reading with them.
