At Poringland Primary School and Nursery we believe that reading should be at the heart of our curriculum. We aim to engender a life-long love of reading; encouraging children to read for pleasure whilst simultaneously developing discrete word-reading and comprehension skills. We achieve this by giving the children access to a wide variety of genres and texts through:
- a well-resourced and dedicated library space;
- an up-to-date and ‘topic focussed’ selection of books in every classroom;
- the opportunity to access and download e-books from an online library of over 1000 books;
- being read to every day so that all children can experience high quality and exciting texts.
We believe that every child has the right to read; it is our duty to ensure our children leave Poringland Primary School with the reading skills needed to successfully access a high school curriculum and the world around them.
