Home » Our Curriculum » English » Reading

At Wybunbury Delves, we actively promote a love of reading and reading for pleasure is at the heart of our reading policy. Our learning is holistically planned around quality texts. We aim to enable our children to read fluently, accurately and with understanding and confidence. We aim to foster an interest in words and their meanings and to gain an appreciation of books from a variety of genres. We encourage our children to read and to enjoy looking at a variety of fiction and non-fiction books, and to take their books home to share with their parents as this supports their reading progress in school.
