Power of Reading

Power of Reading!

At Abingdon Primary we use the Power of Reading initiative to rapidly raise standards in reading and develop a lifelong love of reading across our school community. Five of our teachers have been trained by the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education in order to lead the Power of Reading approach across school.

The Power of Reading approach emphasises the importance of books and literature in enabling children to become confident, happy and enthusiastic readers and writers, with all the benefits this brings.  The Power of Reading project is underpinned and based on extensive research and experience. It has been delivered nationally and internationally for over a decade.

As a Power of Reading school, we put quality children’s literature at the heart of learning and have created a whole school culture of reading for pleasure. We use drama, role play and the arts to engage children in books and to help them to delve deeper into the content in order to develop a greater understanding of the characters and storylines. Through this approach, our pupils are better able to develop their higher order reading skills.
