Reading for pleasure – Children can enjoying reading purely for reading’s sake

Range of texts – Children are encouraged to explore a range of genres, authors and complexity of texts

Shared reading – Children have opportunities to share texts, talk about books, read to others and be read to

Active engagement – Children engage with texts through drama, role play, models, film

Positive role models – Adults engage in reading themselves and talk about the books they have read

Daily reading experiences – All children and adults have an exposure to a reading based activity for 20-30 minutes every day
