Phonics and Reading
At Poplars we are fully committed to ensuring reading is at the core of our curriculum. We recognise that by working hard to ensure our children are strong, fluent and enthusiastic readers, they will leave us confident and prepared for the next stage in their education. Alongside developing the fundamental skills of reading, creating a strong, reading for pleasure culture is also vital.
We follow Read Write Inc to provide firm foundations in EYFS and KS1; in KS2, we follow Jane Considine’s Hooked on Books approach to teaching reading. We ensure high-quality texts are used throughout our curriculum, supported by our wonderful new library! To further promote reading for pleasure, every class is read to daily from a carefully selected, diverse collection of poetry, short stories and longer novels.
