Reading, Writing and Phonics


Reading Intent Statement

Books allow us to travel to wonderful places, experience different cultures, go back in time and explore new and imaginary worlds. Here at Henley, we believe that every child should be given the opportunity to experience the joy and wonder that books provide us. We strive to develop every one of our pupils’ reading skills, so that they can become fluent, avid readers. Through a wide range of reading opportunities, we prioritise giving our children every opportunity to access a wide variety of literature and texts that challenge, inform and inspire them.
