At Crampton we place reading at the heart of the curriculum.
We encourage all children to read a variety of text by developing a positive attitude and understanding of what they read.
Year groups focus on a book each half term which forms part of the learning journey and creative curriculum; children also receive a book for independent reading, which is read with the class teacher on a regular basis as well as at home with their parent or carer, children are encouraged to record their thoughts in a reading diary.
We promote reading by;
Listening to and discussing a wide range of fiction, non-fiction, poetry and reference books or text books
Reading books that are structured in different ways and reading for a range of purposes
Increasing their familiarity with a wide range of books including fairy tales and myths and legends
