At Tattershall Primary School we know that by putting reading at the heart of all our learning, children will be able to enter into exciting worlds through books, improve their powerful knowledge and confidently access the curriculum we provide. We believe everyone at our school has a duty to promote reading and this begins in reception and throughout Key Stage One. We develop children’s love for books through sustained structured conversations and discussions.

Our aim is to help children develop a lifelong love for reading so we teach reading in Reception through our Systematic Synthetic Phonics Programme, Little Wandle Letters and Sounds.  Children learn to decode and recognise words through daily, high quality, systematic, phonics teaching. (See link below for more information). Skills in comprehension, stamina and fluency are developed in Key Stage Two where children are taught through small group guided reading sessions.

English Genre Maps

At Tattershall Primary School we make sure our English lessons cover a wide range of genres. The Genre maps outline the genres your child will cover throughout the academic year. Please click the genre map for your child's class to see what genres they will be covering.
