Reading

We are very passionate about books at SFG. Pupils of all ages are expected to read widely and diversely to broaden their horizons and to improve their literacy. All pupils are expected to have a reading book with them at all times.

Research has shown that reading for pleasure makes a huge difference to children’s educational performance. Children who read for enjoyment every day not only perform better in reading tests, but also develop a broader vocabulary, increased general knowledge and a better understanding of other cultures. In fact, reading for pleasure is more likely to determine whether a child does well at school than their social or economic background.

We devote a large amount of curriculum time to reading in each subject. In addition we have two periods of stand alone reading lessons where adults and children read together.

Learning to read is about listening and understanding as well as working out what’s printed on the page. Through hearing stories, children are exposed to a wide range of words. This helps them build their own vocabulary and improve their understanding when they listen, which is vital as they start to read.
