Reading is vital to every child's learning and at the core of our work. On this page you will find documents that explain our Intent for reading - what we aim to achieve for every child; our Implementation - how we achieve this and the choices we have made for our teaching and learning and other documents that demonstrate how reading skills develop and progress, as well as documents to support parents in reading at home.
Our aim at Keinton school is for every child to consider themselves to be a reader, from reception to Year six. All children here have the opportunity to choose from a variety of texts and explore the imaginary or real world within them. First and foremost, we want our children to relish the written word, as a reader, listener and speaker; to be inspired by classic and modern literature and to experience the power that picture books can hold. We want children to be confident, independent readers and for them to challenge and question what they are presented with. Children will develop new vocabulary and knowledge through being introduced to quality core texts and this supports directly the fluency and comprehension skills, which are fundamental to life beyond the school gates.
