We strive to instil a love of reading by providing our children with opportunities to become engaged with different literature across the curriculum.
Our English lessons are planned around a class novel/book to provide children with exciting learning opportunities with a real purpose. This text links closely to the Creative Curriculum topic so that the children are immersed in their learning.
Our reading buddy system sees children reading with their peers from different age ranges and with their families. Reading is important to us.
Children are taught to read phonetically and are very well prepared for the phonics test at the end of Year 1. To teach our phonics, we use Jolly Phonics, LCP and Letters and Sounds.
For further information about how you can support your child with their reading, please contact our English leader, Caroline Greenwood.
