Reading for Pleasure
At Middlefield Primary Academy we are passionate about reading. We aim to raise achievement in reading but also the enjoyment element. Teachers plan English and reading sessions creatively using high quality texts. The Power of Reading has inspired our teaching and learning across the curriculum and throughout the school: this is reflected in the children's love of reading.
In September 2019, our aim was to provide a wider range of reading resources for all children. With the support of the PTA and funds raised through a Read-a-thon week, we were able to purchase many quality phonics, early readers, picture and non-fiction books. In addition, KS1, Year 3 and 4 and Year 5 and 6 received and are participating in the 100 Books challenge. This has also introduced the children to different genres and authors.
