Reading at Preston CofE Primary 2021-2022


Our reading intent:

Reading is taught in line with objectives set out in the Programmes of Study from the new English Curriculum 2014. We believe all children should have the opportunity to read widely and develop their awareness of the world.  Children will experience a wealth of different genres including both fiction and non-fiction during their time at the school. Reading is a high priority both in and out of school; we value parental support to develop our children’s learning potential.  Our children are immersed in a range of diverse and inclusive, modern texts linked to curriculum learning opportunities. 

How can I help support my child with their reading?

We value the support that parents can offer with reading and actively encourage all children to read outside of school.  Research proves that children who read outside of school are more likely to read at their expected age so  we work with Parents to facilitate this.

Enrichment opportunities:

We provide our children with a variety of different enrichment opportunities to ignite their passion for reading.


During the Autumn term, children participated in a number of author webinars with authors such as Jaqueline Wilson and Nick Sharatt. The webinars allowed the children to understand more about the process of writing and how the books were inspired.
