Reading

Intent: 

We believe that every child at Old Fletton Primary School should be given the tools to develop into strong, fluent and enthusiastic readers, enabling them to fully access the whole curriculum.

Reading is not a skill that is left to chance; we ensure early reading in phonics through Read Write Inc is built upon with a commitment to Reading by 6*: hearing every child read every day in Reception and Year 1. 

All children deserve a reading curriculum where clear skills are identified and planned for throughout their school journey, delivered in whole class sessions and is enhanced in other curriculum areas.

Parental support and engagement enables us to maximise the impact we have on our children. As teachers we foster the love of reading through our own enthusiasm in sessions, but also in the texts, opportunities and environments we provide.

“Reading feeds the imagination, it expands horizons and offers new and exciting of ways of 

seeing and making sense of our lives and of the world around us”

Michael Morpurgo
