Why Talk for Reading?

We deliver a skills based reading curriculum which mirrors the Talk for Writing cycle. The benefits of delivering reading in this way is:

  • To ensure children are taught the appropriate skills
  • To ensure that children have a good model of reading
  • To help children develop curiosity and discussion around reading
  • To allow children plenty of opportunities to talk about books and develop a love of reading


This is the cycle we follow in delivering talk for reading



frownFrom the moment children start at Wollescote, we work hard to develop a life-long love of reading.  Children access only the highest quality, attractive, appealing books including an online reading system called Bug Club.  We are hugely proud of our KS2 library, a beautiful, friendly space, packed full of inspiring fiction and non-fiction books.  In class, we promote love and curiosity about reading through our themed based reading corners.  In addition to this, teachers read whole novels to their class, sharing their enthusiasm and love for books.
