Reading Curriculum


At St. Cuthbert's, Reading is very important to us and we want to ensure all of our children leave as readers. As well as decoding, we want to develop comprehension skills, which are also needed for successful reading. We use a quality text to teach reading skills, this means that they are taught in context for our children, and also means they can use them straight away. Below is the skills progression ladder in which we use throughout school and also the progression map for each skill from Reception to Year 6.

Reading at Home...

This year we invested a large amount of funds to purchase a wonderful new range of home reading books. These include fiction, non-fiction, classics and poetry. All our reading books are organised into coloured bands which help us to give your child a book that is right for their age and also ability. We ask that you read regularly at home with your child and write in their diary to help us communicate about their progress!

Below are some useful documents that may help you when reading with your child:
