At Kents Hill Junior School, Children are given the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of a variety of text types during their reading lessons. We provide children with a rich experience of reading. They gain an understanding of an author's use of language as well as the structural features of a text type.
We promote reading for pleasure and encourage children to be reading on a regualr basis at home to gain a richer vocabulary and critical thinking skills. This enables children to become independent learners.
To ensure that all children have a clear understanding of phonics, the school uses rapid phonics which runs alongside our rapid reading programme to support children who do not enter the key stage with a sound understanding in this area.
