Reading at Caldi

Teaching of reading in Caldicotes

The slides show our structured approach to the teaching of reading and how it progresses through the use of our 'phonics teaching' and beyond.

The Caldi Reading Vending Machine

Every time a child accumulates 25 'reads' at home with their reading for pleasure book, phonic book or using the online Lexia or Reading Plus resources, they are then rewarded with a visit the vending machine to choose a book to keep and take home.

All aboard the Caldi Coach!

Be remarkable, be a star, pick a book from our coach; you'll always go far!

We are very lucky to have our 'Caldi Coach' as our base for our 'home reading for pleasure' resources, where children visit and select their choice of book to read for pleasure at home. 

Our double decker bus has been wonderfully repurposed as a place for children to be able to access reading at playtimes and lunchtimes along with engaging  with other aspects of our curriculum too as part of learning time.

Embedding our reading culture in Caldicotes

Children across school are provided with opportunities to read to adults to support their reading accuracy, fluency and comprehension development. They are able to use our wide range of curriculum linked text to broaden their learning and experiences too.
