How we teach Reading at Benfield Primary School

From phonics, to inference, reading skills are embedded into all subjects across the curriculum . Our children read every day and are read aloud to every day so that children experience reading as joyful, nurturing and positive.​

Children’s oracy is a priority and is weaved into all aspects of learning.  We immerse the children in a language rich environment in order to maximise their communication skills . This supports the progression and use of high quality vocabulary. It underpins progress and attainment in reading and writing so that children learn to  read as a writer and write as a reader.​​

We believe that equipping children with reading skills leads to success in all areas of their education, inspires creativity, boosts self-confidence and offers greater potential to lead rewarding and enriching lives.​
