Reading at Selborne
At Selborne, we are passionate about reading and make it a priority. We know that reading unlocks access to learning in all subjects, and our aim is to encourage the children to develop a love of books and a passion for reading. Our reading motto is ‘Reading is your window to a new world’.
In order to facilitate the teaching and learning of reading, and to effectively develop reading skills, we have clear, daily, timetabled guided reading lessons based on carefully selected, high-quality texts. Phonics is also taught daily using the RWI Phonics scheme.
Reading for Pleasure is also a priority, with a well-stocked library teeming with enticing books, as well as outdoor reading areas, extensive classroom libraries and our teachers reading to children throughout the day.
