Reading in the National Curriculum
"Through reading in particular, pupils have a chance to develop culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually. Literature, especially, plays a key role in such development. Reading also enables pupils both to acquire knowledge and to build on what they already know."
Here at Austhorpe we proudly call ourselves a reading school, as it is central to all that we do. We firmly believe that reading is the key which unlocks the door to many different areas of learning. Our aim is to encourage and challenge our children to become fluent readers, have the confidence to choose a wide range of books and to cherish the time they spend reading.
