Reading and Phonics

Reading Curriculum Intent
“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” - Dr. Seuss
As Readers our children will be enthusiastic and motivated by literature and will choose to read for pleasure.  They will learn the skills needed to decode words in order to be able to read fluently and accurately.  Through meaningful, rich experiences they will develop their vocabulary and language comprehension so that they are able to ask and answer questions about their reading.
Reading is at the very heart of our curriculum. We are committed to promoting a love for reading and for not only giving children opportunities to read in English lessons, but in the wider curriculum too.
