Reading

At the Arches, we aim to ensure that all children become confident and fluent in reading. Our ambition is for all children to develop a love of reading for pleasure. We endeavour to achieve this through providing high quality, engaging texts; creating welcoming reading areas and modelling reading for pleasure. Reading is a high priority at The Arches therefore children have regular oppurtunities to read for diffrent purposes within English and across the curriculum.

Children are initially taught to read through Letters and Sounds phonics lessons. They will practise and apply the skills they need to decode and blend to read unknown words in small group guided reading, shared reading and comprehension sessions.
