Reading at FPJS
At FPJS, we recognise reading as an invaluable life skill, essential if our children are to reach their potential. The skills needed to read and understand texts are taught systematically, rigorously and passionately so children develop into fluent and confident life-long readers who not only enjoy reading but can use it effectively to learn.
As stated in our curriculum Intent, we also ensure that we are focused on our federation's vision is for all of our children to have the skills and knowledge that they need to be successful in their next stage of their learning and beyond - to be the best that they can be.
Our reading curriculum provides purposeful and relevant texts that nurture independent learners with a lifelong passion for reading.
