At Tennyson Road, we are proud of our reading results from reception to Year 6.
The children are immersed in a 'book' rich curriculum which opens their worlds to a million different experiences each and every day.
Through the wide variety of texts that we explore we teach a complexity of grammar and punctuation skills to our children; this means the children naturally use it in their own work helping them to develop exciting, creative and mature pieces of independent writing. At Tennyson Road, we know 'How to teach guided reading like a boss!' which is a new guided reading programme which enables us to explore challenging texts, music and images as part of our morning sessions each day. The programme enables the children to independently develop 4 core English skills: Identify, Compare, Contrast and apply. We are proud to follow the programme and are seeing exceptional progress across all year groups.
