Learning to Read
Reading is a vital skill for children in all areas of the curriculum. From Nursery until they leave us at the end of year 2, we aim to teach children the building blocks for reading, enabling them to become fluent readers. Children have daily phonics lessons to learn how to 'sound out' words and blend the sounds together to read words. They also learn the different strategies they will need, such as recognising tricky words on sight, or referring to pictures to help them work out meaning. Once they can read effectively, children learn how to make inferences about what they are reading in order to answer questions about texts.
We also aim to foster a love of reading that will stay with children into their adult lives, through reading stories, sharing favourite books and spending some time every day reading, either in a group, with an adult or independently.
Children who enjoy reading for pleasure are five times more likely to read above the expected level for their age.
