READING

Learning to Read

We believe that reading is at the heart of all children’s learning and is an essential life-long skill. We strive for children to learn to love books; have an innate desire to read for pleasure and develop a natural curiosity for language and its intricacies. In developing the skill of reading, the children will also gain access into a wide variety of facts and figures contained within non-fiction. Our curriculum provides children with the opportunity to immerse themselves in quality texts that are age-appropriate and give a balanced diet of fiction, non-fiction and poetry experiences.

We aim to raise and / or sustain pupils’ levels of attainment / achievement in reading throughout the school by modelling and instilling positive attitudes and developing specific skills.
