English - Reading
Today a Reader, Tomorrow a Leader.
At St Bartholomew’s, it is our aim to provide a rich, comprehensive reading programme, offering children a range of opportunities to develop as fluent, enthusiastic, confident and life-long readers, who read for interest, information and enjoyment. We aim to develop learners who are passionate about reading but who also have a deeper understanding of the world around them.
Reading is at the core of our curriculum and is an integral part of all curriculum subjects. Where possible, we teach using a cross curricular approach in order to make learning meaningful for the children. Quality books, both fiction and nonfiction, are utilised throughout the varying topics across the curriculum giving our children the opportunities to read widely, experience topic-related vocabulary in context and to deepen their understanding and curiosity for the topic itself.
