Reading is an essential skill that supports children throughout school and in their lives outside of school.  We have prioritised reading to ensure that all children can learn to read fluently and that they are able to understand what they are reading. 


Reading begins with phonics and we begin our phonics lessons at the very beginning of Foundation Stage.  


Children will be reading as a whole class, in small groups and individually.  Please take the time to read regularly with your child - it really does make a difference to their learning in every subject.  Children can change their books regularly.  If your child is in FS, Y1 or Y2, they will be able to compete in the Superhero Challenge, receiving superpowers when they read at home. 


If you would like to be one of our reading volunteers, please contact Ms Sewell in Y1.
