Reading at Key Stage 2: Destination Reader


Both in school at home, we want to build a culture of reading for pleasure and purpose. Our approach to reading involves daily sessions incorporating clear adult modelling prior to the children applying these skills through partner work and independent reading. Children deepen their understanding of the challenging texts they read through the  systematic use of a series of strategies and language stems. Our approach encompasses the key principles of effective reading provision and fully meets the requirements of the National Curriculum by creating deep understanding of texts, developing oracy around reading and increasing children’s breadth of reading. 

What do the Children think of Destination Reader?

Aleesha - "Before I knew I was a good reader, I really love reading different books but now I feel really 
                 challenged to become an even better reader! Destination Reader has been great!"

Rolands - "Destination Reader is great because it has helped me to become a better reader. I have 
                 improved my reading skills such as inferring and clarifying the meaning of new words I read.    
                 When the teacher thinks out loud it helps me with my own reading. It makes it easier to see if I                  am getting better."
