Reading

Every child a Reader

Intent

At Guardian Angels’ we believe that Reading is a fundamental skill which enables children to access all areas of learning, ensuring they can make progress and succeed. We aim to provide children with a literacy-rich environment, high quality texts and inspiring learning opportunities, which will help them to gain a life-long enjoyment of reading and books. Children are taught to read accurately, fluently and with understanding. Children are shown how to apply a knowledge of structured synthetic phonics in order to decode unfamiliar words with increasing accuracy and speed and how to read with expression, clarity and confidence. We develop a good linguistic knowledge of vocabulary and grammar as well as teaching children how to read and respond to a wide range of different types of texts to develop a deeper level of emotional intelligence and empathy. We encourage and support children to develop their oracy and discussion skills alongside their written and comprehension skills.
