At Miriam Lord Primary School we work hard to develop children's reading skills and to promote a love of books and text. We want children to be confident readers, who enjoy reading a wide range of texts and can talk about books and authors. The schools follows the Oxford Reading Scheme. As well as teaching the skills necessary to do this within guided reading sessions, we have invested in our children by building a state of the art library full of exciting books.
We have been so lucky to work alongside CLPE to implement the Power of Reading over the past five years at Miriam Lord. We value this partnership, and were delighted when they asked us to be a CLPE Associate School, as they wanted to recognise our commitment towards promoting high standards of reading, books and literature with our children. They visited us recently to make videos of our practice, to share these with other schools nationally, and use them as case studies of strong practice. You can find them on YouTube at the links below.
