At Blackthorn Primary School we are pssionate 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, but these are our staring points for Septemebr 2018. 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.
