Reading is fundamental, in fact it is one of the most important ingredients to becoming all that you can be!
Reading develops your brain, provides a window into the world around you and helps you to do better in all subjects.
“The whole world opened up to me when I learned to read” – Mary McCleod Bethune
At Park Road Academy Primary School, we believe that for all of our children to become fluent readers and writers, phonics must be taught through a systematic and structured phonics programme. We use Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised.

Olly and Lilly
Our EYFS and KS1 children enjoyed talking and listening to the story of Olly and Lilly. This book help the children to understand different family types, their own and their friends situations. It also allowed the children to explore feelings and emotions and to openly ask questions about family life.
