Reading

 ‘When I read great literature, great drama, speeches, or sermons, I feel that the human mind has not achieved anything greater than the ability to share feelings and thoughts through language.’- James Earl Jones 

 

Purpose of study 

Reading at our school will enable pupils to develop the skills needed to gain knowledge across the wider curriculum. We want our pupils to develop their love of reading. We want them to read widely and often, for both pleasure and information purposes, to become fluent readers. We will teach pupils strategies to help them to decode unknown words and give them the opportunities to develop their comprehension skills. Pupils will learn to read with greater understanding; locate and use information; follow a process or argument and summarise what they learn from their reading. 

 

Aims 

Our curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils: 

  • Can use phonological skills to decode and segment unknown words
  • Become fluent and confident readers
  • Develop their love of literature through reading widely and often, for both pleasure and information 
  • Can use their reading skills appropriate to age across the curriculum to comprehend a range of texts
  • Acquire a wide subject specific vocabulary

Organisation

  • Reading is taught daily across the school through high quality, whole class reading lessons in addition to discrete daily phonics sessions in EYFS and KS1.
  • Whole class daily reading lessons allow the teacher a greater amount of time to focus on reading skills such as inference and comprehension. 
  • In classrooms, teachers will place a high value on books and reading by ensuring that the classroom has a well-designed and looked after class library area. 
  • Finding daily opportunities for children to read independently and at length to develop a love of reading for pleasure. 
  • Ensuring that daily reading aloud of aspirational and engaging texts happens throughout the school day by class adults. 
  • The school will provide additional events and activities to widen the scope of reading such as; trips to the local library, author visits into school and whole school reading events will be celebrated throughout the year.
