English: Read for pleasure and learn the most

Why is this important?

The Read On. Get On. campaign defines ‘reading well’ as children not only being able to read the words that are written down, but also having a wider understanding of the meaning behind stories and information and being able to talk about them and comment on them. To achieve this for all children by the time they leave primary school, requires us to teach children to decode effectively and efficiently; to teach reading comprehension and to foster and celebrate an enjoyment of reading in all our communities.
