Reading Schemes at Horizon

Reading Schemes at Horizon

At Horizon we use a number of reading schemes throughout the school to ensure that children develop the key reading skills in a progressive programme and develop a love of reading as they grow and develop as readers across the key stages.

Read, Write, Inc.

This is used in correlation with the phonics programme and is a phonics-based reading programme used in Reception and early in Year 1.

Oxford Reading Tree

This is used in Early Years and Key Stage 1 to supplement Read, Write, Inc and to focus on the early stages of reading. 

Accelerate Reader

This is used in Year 2 and Key Stage 2. It is a staged programme, using high quality texts from recognised authors to engage the children and develop a love of reading. To accompany the reading, there are a number on online quizzes to develop and assess the children's comprehension skills. Children are awarded certificates for the number of words they read.
