Reading Skills

The PM Benchmark assessment is used in collaboration with our reading homework to support pupils who struggle with reading. This assesses each pupils reading on a regular basis and is done on a one to one basis.

Reading Homework is done fortnightly by every pupil who comes to the library in years 7 & 8. Reading is based around ability, so we have a wide choice of books. The homework is based on wide reading, so pupils can choose books they enjoy but we also pop in a couple of themes so that every pupil is familiar with a wide range of genres by the time they leave Year 8.
