Welcome to Primary Phase Reading.
At William Hulme’s, we value reading as a key life skill and are dedicated to enabling our pupils to become lifelong readers. Our school understands the challenge that exists between teaching children to be fluent readers whilst ensuring that we support them to develop a life-long love of reading. Our reading curriculum is designed to achieve a balance between develop the Instructional Agenda (the skill) and the Pleasure Agenda (the will). This policy intends to promote a love of reading for all pupils whilst creating life-long readers who have the skills to access all areas of the curriculum with independence and confidence so that they go on to be successful in Key Stage 3 and beyond.
Our reading curriculum is also planned in a way which promotes the cultural capital of all our children. We enhance our curriculum by providing access to a diverse range of texts including those which promote different socio-economic backgrounds, disabilities, religions and cultures, and periods of history.
