At St John's Catholic Primary School, children are immersed in literacy in all areas of the curriculum and school life. Whilst your child may not be 'heard' to read every day, they read throughout the school day, developing important vocabulary, and speaking, listening and writing skills.
We encourage all children to read out loud at home to an adult, in order to continue developing fluency and expression. Parents/carers use the home reading book to record when children have read at home. It is important that all children read out loud at home, and also discuss the book, as this plays an important role in your child further developing comprehension skills.
We have provided some useful documents which explain reading and phonics in greater detail.
