At Gipsey Bridge Academy we value reading as a key life skill. We aim for all of our children to develop an enjoyment of reading by immersing them in high quality texts from a range of genres. Through our holistic approach to teaching reading, children gain the necessary skills to develop into competent readers, who can read fluently, with confidence and gain a deeper understanding of what they have read.
We also promote a love of writing within our learners. We want them to be creative and express themselves through their writing. We intend to create writers that are able to re – read, edit and improve their writing.
