THE IMPORTANCE OF READING
AT FIBBERSLEY PARK
At Fibbersley Park our journey of reading begins early. Letters and sounds phonic teaching is our starting point. Early reading continues from this using phonic matched home reading to embed the teaching.
For those who in Key Stage 1, when ready, we use guided reading and VIPERS to support early comprehension skills.
Dedicated reading sessions continue into Key Stage 2, incorporating daily sessions of whole class reading using VIPERS as a basis for content domains to be taught.
Our reading passport programme allows access to high quality recommended reads. We want our children to read for meaning and develop vocabulary too.
We want our children to become lifelong readers who read for pleasure as well as study, so timetable reading for pleasure sessions.
So far, this academic year:
- Using film to promote reading, our children have enjoyed modelled reading through Storytelling Week’s ‘Story Time with Staff’ videos, available via Home Learning.
- Through partnerships with our book suppliers who, in difficult times, have donated generously, our key worker children were given the opportunity to win free books.
World Book Day 2021 will be our latest event, where children will enjoy reading for pleasure.
- Our children will endeavour to discover the identities of Fibbersley Park’s The Masked Reader through careful listening of reading models and following clues.
- They will take part in reading stars challenges, by reading in different places and ways.
- Competitions will be run in each class to promote reading both together and for pleasure, with a national book voucher prize up for grabs.
From Monday 1st March 2021, please follow this OneDrive link to access World Book Day 2021 content, including Fibbersley Park’s The Masked Reader.

As a school, we want to promote and embed a love of reading. 30th January – 6th February 2021 was National Storytelling Week; staff recorded a range of stories to share with all of our children.
From picture books to modern tales, we hope that you will access as many as possible; part of our commitment to further enhance our remote learning offer.
We hope that you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed making them.
