At Chesterfield we love to read. We teach phonics via the WRI programme twice a day to ensure the majority of our children are fluent readers by the end of KS1. In KS2 we have dedicated 30min slots everyday dedicated to teaching the six strategies that children need to learn to be able to read and comprehend fluently. The books we choose reflect the diversity of our community. We have inviting book corners and there is a culture of sharing favourite books amongst adults as well as children.
