Reading at Roxbourne
As I mentioned in the introduction, improving our approach to the teaching of reading and writing is a key priority for the school. Our maths results are strong and are above the national average. However, this isn’t the case for reading and writing, which is why we have heavily invested in resources and staff development, to ensure this area of development becomes a strength of the school, very quickly! On the first day back of 2018, we introduced a new approach to teaching reading from Y1 – Y6. The aim, to embed a love of reading from a young age!
We will also be working on our reading culture as a school community in the coming weeks. There will be more information on our reading approach, which will be delivered through a Parent Workshop on Wednesday 21ST February! Mark the date!
