Reading is one of the most important skills for a child’s success in life. Encouraging regular reading at a young age results in reading becoming a habit to be enjoyed later in life.
At Rundle College we have implemented a reading programme for the Grade 2 and 3 learners, following a reading age assessment. Learners have been supplied with reading books that suit their reading level. The program takes place at the end of the school day for an hour, twice a week, where learners can enjoy their story books with their friends.
Our goal is to raise the level of reading for these learners and create an environment in which they are able to be imaginative and build a keen interest in discovering stories in books. We aim for learners to build their confidence in reading aloud, as well as improve their reading fluency and vocabulary.
