Curriculum: Reading

Power of Reading - We are fortunate to be taking part in a renowned, nationwide reading project, which ensures children are exposed to high quality, high interest and varied texts which foster a love of reading. The power of reading allows children to fully explore wonderful books in a range of different ways including drama, art, music and book making. One year five child credited her wonderful vocabulary to the power of reading and the book her teacher has been sharing in class. She said.... “ My teacher reads me books I wouldn’t usually pick up and this helps me to learn new words.”
