Milton Park Primary School

Every day a learning adventure

Reading in year 2

Reading underpins all that we do at Milton Park. We approach this vital skill in the following ways:

  • reading for enjoyment- our children have access to a wide range of quality books which they choose based on their own interests and preferences
  • guided reading- this is a teacher led session where the skills and techniques of reading are taught in small groups
  • individual reading- we aim to have each child read with an adult in school as often as possible.
  • home reading- by sharing books at home, you are able to help us to embed a love of reading.


 Children progress at different speeds. We undertake regular assessments to be certain that they are challenged and supported by the books that they choose. 

Please encourage the children to share any books that they have loved at home. We always enjoy hearing about the stories and knowledge that they experience with their families!
