"Libraries store the energy that fuels the imagination. They open up windows to the world and inspire us to explore and achieve, and contribute to improving our quality of life." -Sidney Sheldon (1917-2007. American writer and producer)
People generally want to be able to use their favorite apps on all of their devices and in any context. In iOS, interface elements layouts can be configured to automatically change shape size on different
devices multitasking on iPad, split view, when the screen is rotated, and more. It’s essential that you design an adaptable interface that provides a great experience in any environment.
Reading at Greenacre
At Greenacre we encourage all children to read both in school and at home. Reading is incorporated into the timetable and we have the Oxford Reading Tree books that help to develop a child’s love for reading and ensure rapid progress.
Phonics lessons start in the foundation stage and play an essential part in helping students learn how to spell words. When a child is taught phonics, they will be able to recognise sounds in words and will be able to spell them correctly. ‘Phonics’ involves teaching children that letters, or groups of letters, make certain sounds. Children are taught to put together or ‘build up’ the sounds for unfamiliar written words by changing letters into sounds and blending the sounds together.
Alongside phonics we teach a range of strategies to develop reading and understanding including looking at the illustrations, context-based clues and deciding whether a sentence makes sense. Further reading opportunities are provided through whole class shared reading, daily guided reading sessions and independent reading times.
In addition, we are proud to provide all children with frequent access to our school library.
We value the support parents and carers give to their children by reading regularly with them at home. We recognise the positive contribution this makes to children’s progress, attainment and enjoyment of reading.
