Reading at NBP

We want everyone to grow up loving reading and enjoying it.  We expect everyone to practise reading at least 3 times each week at home.  Teachers have incentives and treats for pupils who read a lot or improve their reading rapidly.

We build in lots of opportunities to read during the school day, including:

  • Guided Reading lessons
  • Reading in English lessons
  • Reading in Maths lessons
  • Reading in Science, Art, History, Geography, Music, RE, PSHE, Computing, PE...
  • Outdoor reading at break and lunchtime
  • Reading in the library

Teaching phonics, spelling and developing vocabulary are also threaded through the curriculum, which support reading and writing.
