Reading is at the heart of all independent and collaborative learning. In the words of Katherine Rundell: 'Reading is a crowbar to the world.' Our whole school curriculum is centered where possible, around books. Reading allows vocabulary to grow and enormously supports access and understanding of all subjects...and the world!
We would encourage children to read something every day.
We would encourage children to read widely - news, comics, poetry, non-fiction, instructions...
We would encourage children to explore meanings and vocabulary with adults.
Homework will be set on a Friday for the following Friday.
