Reading in Primary School

We all know the importance of developing a culture of reading in the classroom and beyond, for reading for enjoyment as well as reading for information and continuously showing the value of reading.  

Although we constantly face a battle with time, we should try to ensure that children are reading every day and that we are providing challenges as well as activities that will support increased fluency and accuracy.  

As children progress through school, it is important to increase their exposure to, and engagement with, different types of factual books and to provide them with the skills they need, to read for information and purpose.
