Teaching of Reading

Reading at Portobello 


Learning to read is one of the most important things your child will learn at our school. Everything else depends on it, so we put as much energy as we possibly can into making sure that every single child learns to read as quickly as possible and with good understanding.

Considerable emphasis is placed upon creating a challenging and stimulating language rich environment and providing our children with a wide range of texts. Children at Portobello love to read and understand how important it is to their learning journey.

“I like books because they make me happy, they are filled with fun, crazy and imaginative things.”  (Year 4 Pupil)
