Reading Schemes in KS1 At Castle View the children read books from a range of reading schemes to ensure that the children are being supported to read a variety of books which are both fiction and non-fiction texts. The children read individual books, in guided reading groups and also take books home to read from the classroom and from the school library. The schemes we use for individual reading are: Rigby Star Oxford Reading Tree Ginn Big Cat Collins. Oxford Literacy Web These schemes are then mixed together so that children who are working within the different book bands will read books from all of these schemes and therefore benefit from a rich variety of stories and texts. Guided Reading Books. The guided reading books are placed in book bands and are also linked to the phase the children are working on in their phonics sessions. We also select these books based on the children developing their understanding of stories and texts. The children will respond to the texts they have read by answering a range of questions which will support the children to understand the story and develop inference and deduction skills when reading. The schemes of books which we read are: Ginn Big Cat Collins PM Library PM Library starters.
