Reading Across the Curriculum

Reading is central to every subject taught across the academy. Reading is prioritised again throughout the teaching of foundation subjects and we aim to, wherever possible, link whole-class texts in English to the foundation curriculum. For example, when teaching history, our Year 6 children read ‘Goodnight Mr Tom’ and we provide the children with opportunities to use essential reading skills alongside encouraging the learning of new knowledge such as ‘life as an evacuee in WWII.’ Reading is also taught alongside ‘WOW’ or themed days to ensure that the children are absorbed in activities to ensure ‘sticky learning’. These opportunities are consistently provided across all of the foundation subjects to ensure that they are brought to life and that our pupils are completely immersed in their reading materials.
