Coningsby St Michael's Church of England Primary School

Believe. Aspire. Succeed.


At Coningsby St Michael’s we know that by putting reading at the heart of all our learning, children will be able to enter into exciting worlds through books, improve their powerful knowledge and confidently access the curriculum we provide. We believe everyone at our school has a duty to promote reading and this begins in reception and throughout Key Stage One. We develop children’s love for books through sustained structured conversations and discussions.

Our aim is to help children develop a lifelong love for reading so we teach reading in reception through the Read Write Inc. programme. Children learn to decode and recognise words through daily, high quality, systematic, phonics teaching. (See link below for more information). Skills in comprehension, stamina and fluency are developed in Key Stage Two where children are taught through whole class guided reading lessons.


At Coningsby St Michael's we use Ruth Miskin's Read Write Inc phonics program to teach sounds and early reading. Please click for more information:
