At South Green Infant School and Nursery, we believe that reading has to be a top priority as it allows the children to access everything that our curriculum has to offer
The skill of reading underpins everything that is taught and opens the door not only to learning across the curriculum but to many other opportunities in the wide world
We want our children to want to read; to want to become better readers and to know that reading can be a pleasure as well as opening doors to new knowledge. We want our children to experience the feeling of “escaping into a good book”
We want reading opportunities across our school to be ambitious for all our children and to ensure our disadvantaged and SEN children have the same opportunities to experience books and other texts that all other children have
We intend for all our pupils to be able to read fluently and with confidence in any subject
We want reading to support our children to gain knowledge across the curriculum
We intend for our carefully planned lessons to support the children’s comprehension skills
We intend to make our school a language rich environment with vocabulary rich reading material and good quality texts for the children to choose from
We hope to promote confidence and positive attitudes to reading
All children are to be read to regularly, at least daily, to ensure they are familiar with both classic stories and authors, and newer texts and authors
We want children to discover that reading allows them to discover new knowledge, revisit prior knowledge and understand more about what they want to learn about, fueling their own imagination
