At Ashfield Infant and Nursery School we LOVE reading!

We have carefully created a reading curriculum which sparks joy and imagination while enabling children to develop their knowledge of themselves and their world. The balance between word reading and comprehension has been carefully considered to ensure children develop the skills needed to become confident and competent readers. Reading for pleasure is promoted across the school and staff continually strive to encourage reading and provide opportunities for children to benefit from a wide selection of quality poetry, fiction and non-fiction texts. 

We use Power of Reading texts as the cornerstone to our curriculum.
