At Newton we love to read and we know that learning to read is a really important skill! We learn to read in lots of different ways and we work hard to build up our word reading and comprehension skills. In Reception and KS1 we learn phonics which we use as the basis for our reading and we use this knowledge in combination with word recognition as we move throughout the school.
If you would like to know more about how we learn reading at Newton then please see the PowerPoint below.
We love to read different types of texts at home and have a challenge to read a range of texts over two weeks if we are in KS1 and a half term if we are in KS2.
