English - Reading @ OMS

At Olney Middle School, we see reading as both a subject in its own right and the medium for teaching across all subjects; for pupils, understanding language and intent of texts provides access to the whole curriculumThrough carefully chosen, high-quality texts, children are immersed into different worlds and settings and encouraged to question their own understanding and interpretation of what they have read, enriching their learning and harnessing a love of reading. We have high expectations of all children and we encourage children to challenge themselves, persevere and pursue success, always striving for greatness.
