“Imagine a school where pupils enjoy, discuss and work with a core of books. These ‘essential reads’ would be a store of classics, creating a living library inside a child’s mind. This is the Reading Spine… a common bank of stories that bind the community together”
Our Reading Intent
All children will leave our Infant School with the reading skills they need to access the Junior Curriculum with confidence. They will have a ‘living library’ in their minds, created by engagement with high quality books throughout their early years. Our approach to teaching reading is ‘Phonics First…but not forever’ as fluency and enjoyment of reading are our ultimate goals.
