Reading

A Reading Community

At East Farleigh we are working hard to develop a community of readers who are hooked on books. We are embracing an exciting new way of teaching reading and we look forward to sharing this with you soon.

Stay tuned to find out how you can support your child with their reading at home and to see how reading is at the heart of our new curriculum.

Updates and more information coming soon...
