Driffield Junior School



Reading is really important to us at Driffield Junior School. We believe it’s not enough to simply give children the skills to become technically competent readers. We want them to be able to engage critically with a range of texts, develop their ability to analyse, consider and question, and also grow to love their language and all it can do through encounters with works by some of our greatest children’s authors.

At our school your child will:

  • Be taught effective reading strategies through shared, guided and sometimes 1 to 1 reading.
  • Experience the joy of class story time.
  • Be given swift and targeted reading interventions if they find reading difficult.
  • Enjoy the feeling of achievement gained by progressing through our recently enriched reading scheme.
  • Have the opportunity to consolidate their learning online by accessing Bug Club.
  • Be rewarded as a class for diligent home reading with the treat of extra playtime.
  • Experience many exciting activities designed to promote the pleasure and knowledge that can be gained through books such as World Book Day activities, school book fairs, visits to the library and visits from published children’s authors.
