Evidence in Action: Reading
Spotlight on reading for pleasure and progress
Spend the morning at St Matthew’s to see how we have used evidence to inform the teaching of reading for progress and to guide a deliberate culture of reading for pleasure and progress.
-Hear about the evidence-informed rationale behind our teaching of reading
-Observe reading practice in action, in both KS1 and KS2
-Look through reading journals and see the St Matthew’s rich reading curriculum
-Speak to teachers, leaders and children about how and why reading at St Matthew’s works.
The tour of the school was a treat – it was great to see how rich in literature all of the school is and how the school links theory and practice.
