"I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a good book" J K Rowling.
Reading and being able to read under pins almost every aspect of both teaching and learning. It is so important that children gain confidence and are able to read fluently by the end of year 2 so that they able to access the KS2 curriculum and become successful learners.
At Streethouse Primary School EYFS and KS1 children are taught to read using the Read Write Inc programme which teaches children a mix of phonics sounds, blending and reading fluency. It is important that children then use these skills at home by reading their book bag books and coloured reading books.
Reading for pleasure and choosing books and genres that children enjoy is paramount and as school we are working hard to provide children with a rich and varied reading curriculum .
