At Bishopton, we believe that reading is the most important skill learnt in the primary years. Instilling the habit of reading, and a love of books is a vital part of classroom teaching.
The development of early reading skills is one of the essential building blocks of primary school learning.
Children should then be challenged to develop their reading strategies and to become reflective in their choice of reading material. If the teaching of reading is successful, the reading habit is fostered so that it becomes a pleasurable activity and a resource for life.'
