The ability to read is an essential need of every child and is highly valued at Freeman's Endowed CE Junior Academy. Reading skills are taught through literacy sessions and are reinforced throughout the whole curriculum. Teachers deliver whole-class reading sessions where various text types are explored and children are taught a range of reading skills such as retrieval, vocabulary and inference. 

Throughout the Academy, we value Reading for Pleasure and children have opportunities to enjoy reading and listening to books every day. All children have the opportunity to borrow level-specific reading books and visit the school library once a week where there are a range of fiction and non-fiction books as well as newspapers and comics.

All children are encouraged to share books at home as this is a crucial part of their child’s reading journey. Children are expected to read at home at least three times a week and recorded in the child’s ‘Reading Record’ log book.
