Reading is an exercise in empathy; of walking in someone else’s shoes for a little while.
Our Wonderful Millionaire Readers!
At Greensted Junior School, we know that being able to read fluently is a vital life skill but we also see it as an opportunity to transport yourself on magical journeys; to incredible places; with extraordinary characters; and where your imagination can run wild.
All of our staff adore reading and actively encourage that enthusiasm in our children to ensure they also develop a “love of reading” for the rest of their lives.
As a reader, it is also important to be able to evaluate what you have read. and this is also something which we incorporate into our English lessons.
