Reading at Lanesfield Primary School

Through the teaching of reading, we aim to enable pupils to:

  • Become fluent, expressive and comprehensive readers;
  • Read with enjoyment across a range of genres as well as for information;
  • Understand and apply their knowledge of phonics and spelling patterns and use this to decode words with accuracy;
  • Have an interest in words and their meanings, developing a rich and varied vocabulary;
  • Understand the layout and how to use different genres and text types;
  • To develop a love of reading through good role modelling and seeing adults reading as well as being read to;
  • To develop the teaching and learning of reading attitudes through HOM.
