Our Reading and Phonics Scheme
At Bourton Meadow Academy, we are committed to promoting the enjoyment of reading as we believe the ability to read and comprehend is the key to success and fulfilment in all areas of learning.
We provide children with the strategies they need to develop proficient skills in both word recognition and language comprehension to help them become successful readers. Alongside both processes, we promote an appreciation of how reading a variety of texts, genres and authors unlocks hidden treasures to allow escapism into new worlds and beyond.
Reading is a self- extending process – the more children read – the better they become.
