At Willowdown Primary, we believe that the English curriculum prepares all pupils to lead an enriched, fulfilling life by teaching the skills they need to communicate effectively and confidently with others, using the spoken and written word. We aim to promote a life-long love of reading which develops their cultural, emotional and intellectual awareness so they can participate fully in the world around them.
Willowdown Reading Maps (Reception to Year 6)
As a school, we place high-quality texts and stories at the heart of our curriculum. Our reading maps have been designed specifically to ensure characters and settings are interesting, varied and diverse, enabling children to experience the wider world. These texts may be used in writing lessons, in whole class reading or in group guided reading sessions. The texts aim to help instill a lifelong love of reading.
