At Goldthorpe Primary Academy we are committed to developing a love of Reading. We believe that children should be taught phonics first and fast to unlock opportunuties for decoding and reading fluency. For Phonics teaching we use the 'Letters and Sounds' document to ensure succinct and sequential teaching of Phonics. We have also recently invested in phonetically decodable home reading books matched to the children's phonic phase. All of our children have access to high quality ambitious texts through the DELTA Reading Strategy sessions. We will also soon be re-developing our library space for all of our pupils to access and enjoy. Reading is central to the curriculum and is a whole academy priority.
