Reading for Pleasure
'Making sure that children become engaged with reading from the beginning is therefore one of the most important ways to make a difference to their life chances, whatever their socio-economic background' DfE, 2021.
We promote a positive attitude towards reading and hope to instil a lifelong passion for reading in our children. Everyday our children are given the time to; read for pleasure, share their favourite books with others and listen to a book read aloud by an adult. Our aim is for children to understand and read different genres, themes and learn about a variety of authors as they move through the school.
Below you will see our half-termly Reading newsletters which provide updates with what our children have been doing in school around reading and lots of recommended reads from staff and children.
