Form Time Reading at Chiswick
Last year we successfully launched the Chiswick school form time reading scheme! For half an hour each morning, three days per week, the students listen to their form tutor read aloud from the prescribed novel for their year group. The students participate in a range of reading activities and discussions about the novel lead by their form tutor. We are aiming to explore a vast range of characters, settings and language across year groups as well as equipping the students with the skills they need to become more independent readers and excel across their subjects. KS5 students are also participating in the scheme but focusing their discussions on developing critical and higher order thinking skills in order to better equip them for higher education.
