Reading at Heighington Millfield

Children are encouraged to enjoy reading a range of books and texts.

In class, each child takes part in Guided Reading sessions.

Reading Books are sent home daily. Parents and pupils are encouraged to read together regularly and fill in their reading record.


In school, we use a colour book banding system to organise our reading books. Within each colour band is a range of fiction and non-fiction texts (at a similar reading age level). These books include titles from The Oxford Reading Tree and Tree Tops schemes.


During our guided reading sessions, we also use selected books from Floppy's Phonics, Rigby Star, Rigby Navigator and Heinemann Literacy World schemes.
