Holy Family Catholic Primary School


Link Governor: Lisa Lackie


A Holy Family Reader can read accurately, fluently and with understanding. They can read widely - across fiction, non-fiction and poetry written by a variety of authors - with expression and confidence, whilst also developing a good linguistic knowledge of vocabulary and grammar. They will develop a lifelong love of reading that will allow them to access any and all opportunities they wish to explore in their futures.

Please see the tabs opposite for more information about how we implement our reading curriculum at Holy Family and the impact this has for our pupils.

At Holy Family, the children's reading diet is jam-packed including daily guided or whole class reading lessons, daily class stories, independent reading time, 'Drop Everything and Read!' sessions, Book Week, book buddies, reading volunteers, visits to the 'Reading Portal', performances and so much more! 

Within our reading curriculum, we also ensure that appropriate literature is explored which can reflect and address the values of Catholic Social Teaching, and we encourage the children to identify these links within all texts. 

This February we celebrated our 'Out of this World' themed Book Week. We finished the week with a fancy dress day and each class teamed up with another class and read one another their favourite stories!
