Daily Focused Reading (DFR)

Children in Key stage 2 are taught reading through Daily Focused Reading or DFR. This approach allows teachers to explicitly teach particular content domains in depth and ensure understanding. We use a range of quality texts to explore a range of genres and types of literature. DFR is delivered though a daily lesson.

Homework and reading books

Reading books are changed on the following days:

3Blue: every Monday

3Red: every Monday

3Yellow: every Monday

Homework and spellings are given out every Friday and children should return them by the following Thursday.

DFR homework is given out on a Friday and it should be returned the following Monday for use in the DFR lesson.

We expect children to read at home every day and their home reading record books should be completed. Children should bring their reading books to school each day.
