AT SOUTHROYD WE ENCOURAGE OUR CHILDREN TO READ TO SUCCEED
Southroyd is a reading school. It has always been our aim to foster a love for reading and understand that it is not just a subject, but the route to a life of opportunities.
From your child's beginning at school, they are prepared in every way to become a passionate reader and they learn to understand why it is such a valuable skill to have.
As well as provide our children with engaging, challenging and inspirational reading lessons throughout their time at Southroyd, we also see reading as a much wider component across a full and diverse curriculum.
- Teach and support children to become fluent and confident readers
- Foster an interest in texts of different genres and media, and an appreciation of the value of books for learning and enjoyment.
- Help children develop a love of reading and introduce them to texts that represent our literary heritage
- Develop reading comprehension skills to enable children to analyse and appreciate a range of texts
