Being able to read with fluency, skill and understanding is a crucial skill for education and for life, both in terms of enjoyment and for learning. At Stoke Canon C of E Primary School and The Three Rivers Federation, we are committed to ensuring that all of our children are taught to read well through a purposeful, systematic and engaging curriculum, in discreet reading lessons and through learning opportunities across the curriculum. Above all, we want children in our school to become enthusiastic, independent and reflective readers who love to read.
