Ryarsh Primary School


At Ryarsh, reading is central to our children’s understanding of the school curriculum and the world around them. It is a vital skill that will help children throughout their life. When children are shown a variety of texts they are provided with the opportunity to develop culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually outside of their own experiences.

Our reading provision aims to provide a rich curriculum that equips all pupils with the skills to read fluently and with understanding. It also provides the children with the opportunity to read a whole book and other types of texts, whilst also developing a love and appreciation of reading.

Curriculum Progression Document

Our reading curriculum progression document is based on our overall curriculum intent statement and details the powerful reading skills that we aim to teach our children, and the sequence in which they are taught. 

The skills stated are based on key reading concepts that we aim to teach our children from when they begin school in reception to when they leave school at the end of year 6. These reading concepts are revisited and 'spiral' over time so that children form a deep understanding within and between various reading units. 

As part of our ongoing evaluations, our curriculum progression documents are continuously strengthened. Below is a copy of our most recent version. They will be updated on our website periodically.
