(See 'Reading' link for further information on our Reading Curriculum).
Our pupils at Chetwynd Primary Academy are given the opportunity to read at school on a daily basis. This happens through shared and independent reading of the class text during English sessions and also through whole reading sessions within classes.
We place a high importance on the children's ability to not only read a text but also to be able to comprehend what they have read including developing the skill of inference as well as developing a broad and varied vocabulary. All children have access to a range of high-quality texts within classrooms which they can choose from and take home.
