Our EYFS and KS1 reading books are all levelled and inline with our phonics scheme. We are currently using red rose phonics, children are assessed regularly and books are chosen to match their phonic levels.
At Water Primary School we have subscribed to the primary reading and phonics programme "Bug Club" for Early Years and Key Stage 1 and 2.
We hope that our children will catch the "reading bug" using the phonic based reading programme where they can connect to an online reading world at home and at school with access to fantastic print books and comics packed with child - friendly characters like Doctor Who, Wallace and Gromit, Ben 10 and a whole host of others.
Bug Club online reading scheme matches directly with our phonics and guided reading schemes.
Teachers throughout the school incorporate bug club on a daily basis into their lessons such as phonics, literacy and guided reading.
Each child has their own Bug Club account - where teachers will allocate e-books regularly

KS2 and our more able Year 2 Readers:-
Children in KS2 and some children in year 2, move onto our school reading scheme. We use the lexile reading level to assign children to appropriate reading books. Children are encouraged to read each night during the school week with an adult. Children are also encouraged to read independently as they become more fluent readers however they should be able to discuss their book when questioned. Each child is given a reading record book, this should be signed by a parent or guardian each day when read.
