DEAR – Drop Everything and Read
All students in Years 7-9 are given 20 minutes a day to drop everything and read. This time is used to support AR but also to foster a love for reading. Both staff and students use this time to drop everything and read books for pleasure.
Form Time Reading
Form time reading (FTR) has been introduced to students in years 7-10 to promote reading for pleasure and to support KBA in becoming a reading rich school. Students are exposed to a range of text types and challenging material. The programme promotes fluency, development of vocabulary and comprehension with form tutors leading these sessions and modelling excellent reading. This term students are reading ‘Private Peaceful’, ‘Wonder’, ‘The Outsiders’ and ‘Boys Don’t Cry.
