At ECPS we LOVE to read!
We are rounded readers because we read a wide range of texts such as; stories, poems, news articles and non-fiction texts.
We are fluent readers because from day one, we are taught phonics by our very skilled teachers and if we need extra help we get it quickly so that we can keep up. We continue to be taught phonics until we can read with fluency.
We are skilled readers because we are taught to make predictions, summarise what we have read and answer questions about the text to show we understand it.
We are expressive readers because we get the chance to listen to our teachers and friends read to us and we practice using expression when we read out loud. We get the chance to practice reading out loud in assemblies, at church services and other special events.
We are passionate readers because reading is at the heart of our curriculum and we are surrounded by inspiration in our library, entrance hall and corridors.
