Our Learning

Reading

Reading at Keresley Academies

Reading is at the heart of the curriculum at Keresley Academies. It forms a key part of all learning experiences with a focus on extending children's language. Children are provided with a wide range of reading opportunities, encouraging a love of reading that will stay with them throughout their lives. We want all children to form positive reading habits and become experienced readers before they move on to the next stage of their education. Our aim is for all children to see themselves as readers; who are discerning about what they like; who are adventurous in their choice of reading material and who are motivated to read widely and constantly. Our practice in school is constantly evolving as we search for the way to ensure we give the greatest number of children the best chance possible of developing these habits.
