At New Ford Academy, we want our children to develop a life-long love of reading and of books. We prioritise the teaching of reading in order that all children become fluent and efficient readers from an early age.
We also encourage children to read at home as often as possible. An age appropriate target for the amount of times a child should read per week is shared with children and parents at the beginning of the year.
You can find out more information about reading and some handy hints for helping your child’s reading in the links below:
We teach reading in a variety of ways to best suit children’s ages & abilities.
