Reading at Clockhouse

Reading at Clockhouse Primary School

 

'I think Clockhouse is a fantastic school because we get to read great books and because of our superb library.' 

Taylor (Year 5)

 

At Clockhouse Primary School we follow the Jolly Phonics approach for the teaching of phonics.

 

Books are banded across the school to ensure a progressive approach to reading.  This is used to support both the teaching of Reading at school and the Home / School Reading approach. Readingeggs and Readingeggspress are also used  as an online tool to further secure improvement. This is used by the children both at school and at home.

 

We love to read!

Reading is very important at Clockhouse, look at these picture of our reading environment.

Our Book Swap Shop

 

A big thank you to one of our School Governors Mrs Wood and her husbsand for making our very of 'Book Swop Shop'.

 

The children and their families are loving using it!

It's Book Hunt Time!

 

Following a reading project undertaken by some of our Year 6 children, they presented their learning in assembly and then created a book hunt to celebrate the end of their project.

 

All the children from Year 1 to Year 6 got to take part and loved hunting down the book title.

 

The children had a great time. Well done to the three winners from each year group.

 

At Clockhouse, we LOVE to read!

Our Amazing School Library - The Enchanted Forest

At Clockhouse we just love our Enchanted Forest.
 
Recently some of our fabulous adults have spent time reorganising it for us and we are now loving using it! 
 
We are sure you will agree it is rather fabulous. We cannot wait to add our amazing book ends in too!

We always have a great time celebrating World Book Day.

Book Day 2023

 

We had a great time celebrating World Book Day.

 

We loved working with author David Mason and also, some of us enjoyed dressing up if we wanted to!

Storyteller comes to Clockhouse

 

As part of the 2018 National Storytelling Week, a real author came to Clockhouse to tell us all lots of different stories. We all had a great time!

Thank you Marcus Rashford

 

All the children in Year 4 were lucky enough to receive this, very recently published, book form Magic Breakfast. 
 
Marcus Rashford has inspired the charity by setting up the ‘Marcus Rashford Book Club’. He wants to ensure that every child has access to books at home as he believes reading is such an important part of life just like we do at Clockhouse
