We recognise reading as being a key element to all learning so, at Thorpe Willoughby, it is our aim to ensure that all children succeed in this area. We have designed our new curriculum to reflect this aim by immersing our children in a wide range of high quality fiction, poetry and non-fiction texts, which allow children to lose themselves in words. We intend that by offering this variety and passion towards literature, it will not only widen children’s knowledge and understanding but also allow all children to ‘find’ their own love of reading.
Throughout school, our half-termly themes are driven by high-quality novels and texts to inspire both reading and writing. Our novels and supplementary texts are carefully selected and varied to offer all children chances to read classics, modern literature, books by well-known, lesser-known as well as up-and-coming authors.
