Reading

At Newquay Junior Academy we love reading. Listening to your child read every night and reading to them is incredibly important. Sharing this time with your child each day will make a significant difference to, not only their reading, but their success as a learner across the whole curriculum.

Newquay Junior Academy prioritises reading by:

  • Creating a love of stories by using books as a focus and stimulus for other learning
  • Using Accelerated Reader to promote a challenge and competitive approach for reading at home
  • Teaching reading skills through a DERICS (Decode, Explain, Retrieve, Interpret, Choice, Summarise) approach
