Click here to visit our Reading Curriculum web page to find out more about how we teach at Reading at Holwell Primary School.
At Holwell, we love to read! We regard reading as one of the most important life skills, because it is the key which unlocks the door to a world of knowledge and sparks imagination and interest.
Each child takes home a decodable reading book, to ensure they have the opportunity to practice reading with fluency. To develop a love for reading, children are also able to have an additional book which is chosen by the child. This book may not be fully decodable but is used by the child when reading with an adult or a more confident reader. This book will contain an ‘I love to read’ bookmark.
