Reading

   Miss Lewis is the subject lead for reading.

Intent

At Northmead we believe children should have access to high quality, inspirational children’s literature in order that they develop a joy of and interest in the written word.  Reading, with understanding, is a fundamental skill, which opens up learning for children and has impact on every area of the curriculum, so it is our intention for all children to become fluent and effective readers. Reading is given a high priority when timetabling to ensure children are involved in a range of reading activities every day. Opportunities for less formal interactions with books and reading are being encouraged as we further develop a rich reading environment within our school.
