Early Reading and Reading for Pleasure

Reading is at the heart of everything we do at St Leonard’s

We firmly believe in the value of reading and we strongly promote it at every opportunity. We use a rigorous and systematic process to teach phonics to allow our children to become independent readers as early as possible. Our timetable has reading activities every day to practice and promote the skills necessary to enable our children to become avid readers. As a cornerstone to our curriculum, we are currently, developing a range of up to date, high quality reading resources. Below you will find links to recommended books for each year group as well as videos of our staff reading their favourite books.
