At St Mary’s we encourage regular reading and most importantly, the love reading.  We are a model school in Cumbria as part of the English Hub.

At St Mary’s we use Read Write Inc. as a starting point for teaching reading.

We also build on the Initial Read Write Inc. phonics and use Read Write Inc. Spelling throughout our school right up to Year 6.

Each year group has whole class reading sessions where we read together using Kindles and Books so that we can all enjoy and learn from different texts.

What books do we read together? These books are a small selection of books read together.
