At The Pines, we promote a love of reading in children from the youngest in Early Years all the way through to Year 6. We recognise that confident readers are able to access information across the whole curriculum and therefore are more likely to succeed in many different subject areas as well as being able to tackle more complex texts when reading for pleasure. 


Reading is initially taught through phonics, starting in Early Years and continuing through Key Stage 1. It is then taught through individual, group and class reading, encompassing the skills of decoding, fluent reading and comprehension. 


Further information will be added as we develop our teaching and learning in reading.
