Reading

At The Meadow School, we value reading as a key life skill and are dedicated to enabling our pupils to become lifelong readers. We expect our children to leave The Meadow reading fluently and effortlessly, with understanding at an age appropriate interest level in readiness for Secondary School. For this to be achieved, carefully planned, systematic, multi-sensory Phonics lessons are taught in order for children to become equipped to decode words accurately; develop an understanding of our complex phonetic code and consequently, become fluent readers. English lessons focus on developing a ‘living library’ in children’s minds, created by engagement with high quality books throughout their Primary years. Our approach to teaching reading is ‘Phonics First…but not forever’ as fluency, comprehension and enjoyment of reading are our ultimate goals as the children move through the school.
