‘There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate’s loot on treasure island.’ – Walt Disney
We love reading and become confident readers by building on the skills we learn in each year group. We have access to a broad and varied curriculum and develop a love of reading by having ‘story-time’ in Key Stage 1, a wide choice of daily reading books and key-stage libraries where we can choose a book for enjoyment. We also read books linked to other areas of the curriculum which brings our learning alive.
We learn reading skills daily throughout the school. In Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1, we learn to read through the Read, Write Inc programme. This helps us to segment and blend words and develops our decoding skills as well as helping us become fluent readers. Beginning in Year 2 and throughout Key Stage 2 we develop our skills through VIPERS.
