The Rigby Star reading scheme is used throughout EYFS, KS1 and KS1 and it runs parallel to the Oxford Reading Tree scheme which is also used at Carlton. The schemes have been matched up to ensure each stage complements the relevant reading age of the children. Children are regularly assessed, using PM Bench Marking, to ensure that they are reading the correct stage book. Books for children are selected to enable both pace of reading and sufficient challenge to help progress pupil’s reading fluency. Children in Key Stage One are given a reading book to take home regularly and have a reading diary which is a home /school link to allow parents to support their child at home.
Rigby Star is a mixture of single book fiction book and wide range of non-fiction books. The fiction books have a range of colourful and exciting characters to excite and interest the young reader. The non-fiction books are exciting and cover a wide range of topics. Rigby Star also includes the ‘Pirate Crew’ range of books which are funny and adventurous. These books are used within school for daily guided reading sessions and are used to develop comprehension skills. Rigby Navigator books (Non-fiction) are also used in school for group reading. When children reach a level 3b in their reading assessment they are able to choose their own home reading book from the class library. Throughout school children have a daily Guided Reading lessons with a focus from our Reading Gems.
