At Laycock Primary School, we value reading as a key life skill, and are dedicated to enabling our pupils to become lifelong readers. We believe reading is key for academic success and so to ensure we have a holistic approach to the teaching of reading. Children who read regularly or are read to regularly have the opportunity to open the doors to so many different worlds! More importantly, reading will give children the tools to become independent life-long learners.
We can achieve this through:
- Read Write Inc, a program to help children read at Laycock
- Encouraging children to develop a love of books by reading to them daily, at home and at school
- Giving children access to a wide range of books at school and at home
At Laycock we use Read Write Inc Phonics (RWI) to give children the best possible start with their literacy.
