Guided Reading

In EYFS and KS1, Newhall Park uses Rigby Star and Bug Club guided reading schemes.  In KS2 we use a wider variety of books from the classics and the Usborne Young Readers through to contemporary novels.


We currently use a system where the cognitive domains for the KS1 and KS2 curriculum are used to colour cold question types to help our pupils understand what is being asked of them.

Please use the questions stems below to help you organise reading sessions at home with your child.  If you have attended one of our reading meetings in school, you will understand the use of the different colours.  If you would like more information please contact Mrs Farooq either through the contact page on the website or by phoning school and booking a meeting.
