At Blackthorn Primary School we are passionate about reading and supporting every child to develop a love of reading. We have mapped out a Reading Journey for each year group to ensure that as your child progresses through the school they have a wide and varied experience of a range of texts to insipre thier imagination and develop them as life-long readers. These books are often the starting points for topics and learning in other areas of the curriculum as they set a context for children to beiging to develop the knowledge and understanding of new ideas. Over time we will be developing and adding to these Reading Journeys. Please take a look and we very much encourage you to talk to your child about the books, whether that is after they have learnt about them or in advance.
