At Woodchurch CE primary school, we believe that every child should have the opportunity to be fluent, confident readers who are able to successfully comprehend and understand a wide range of texts. Furthermore, we believe that every child should feel passionate about learning to read through our full and rich curriculum. We intend for pupils to develop a love of reading, a good knowledge of authors and to be able to understand more about the world in which they live, through the knowledge they gain from a range of texts including fiction and non-fiction. By the end of their time at Woodchurch, all pupils should be able to read fluently, and with growing confidence, in any subject, to support them with their next steps in education. Our unique curriculum and progression for reading ensures that every pupil is given the opportunity to shine.
Learning to read begins with Phonics. Find out about our approach to teaching phonics.
To support our children in becoming skilled readers, following their mastery of phonics, we teach comprehension skills using Whole Class Reading lessons and Accelerated Reader.
