Reading

                                              
At Torridon Primary school we aim to develop a love of reading and encourage every child to read with a grown up at home every night. Children who read with their families grow in confidence much more quickly and develop a love of reading that can last a lifetime. This is one of the most powerful ways of enabling children to progress in all areas of their learning.

At Torridon we believe this is important as reading enables a child to develop their text comprehension and grammar, as well as expose them to a breadth of vocabulary. Furthermore, we believe that developing positive reading attitudes is essential as enjoyment in reading is linked to achievement in reading, greater self-confidence as a reader and pleasure in reading in later life.

We promote reading for pleasure by ensuring that class book corners are appealing and inviting. Children also regularly read on Accelerated Reader, where they can choose an e-book of their own choice and level, which they can then read at their own pace.

Children also regularly visit the Torridon Reading Room, where they have access to many high-quality books of different genres.
