Reading is at the heart of the curriculum and is taught across all curriculum subjects.
Our reading curriculum is designed with 5 key goals in mind.
Reading is taught daily as a discrete lesson across all stages alongside phonics in EYFS and KS1. In early years we focus on word reading and as the children move further through the school, we develop reading fluency. In key stage 1 and 2 we use a skills based approach where children are taught a reading skill, given the opportunity to practise and apply it and then it is all brought together and applied to comprehension tasks. This ensures children can read fluently and have a thorough understanding of what they have read. We also follow Power of Reading for our English lessons (see below for more information).
