Reading Scheme

Reading at Cheynes

At Cheynes Infant School we aim to promote a love of reading in all children.

We celebrate World Book Day every year.

Each class has an exciting and engaging reading area with a range of books for the children to enjoy. 

Every child has access to our library where they can choose a book to take home on a weekly basis. 

Children take part in daily ERIC sessions to develop the reading skills they learn through other areas of the curriculum. 


What is ERIC?  

ERIC stands for Everyone Reading In Cheynes! 

It is a daily session where children take part in reading activities in small groups. These activities will consolidate knowledge and skills children may have learned in their English lessons. 

The adults in the class will also listen to the children read on both an individual and group basis. 


Reading at Home.

We encourage children to read at home as often as they can. This might be sharing a bedtime story, taking home a library book or their home reader. Each child will have a home reading book that they can change as often as they like. Once they have read the book at home they can return it to school and choose a new one that day!


Reading Schemes at Cheynes

Children can choose their reading books from a wide range of schemes. 
We have a large number of books from the Oxford Reading Tree scheme, where children will meet the Robinson family, who get up to all sorts of adventures and mishaps!
