At Mottram CE Primary we believe that one of our most important duties as teachers is to provide every child with the right tools to become a ‘reader’. We are passionate about fostering a lifelong love of reading within all our children. Reading opens a new world for children and provides them with opportunities to explore new ideas, visit new places, meet new characters and develop a better understanding of other cultures. High quality texts are incorporated throughout the curriculum so that children are exposed to a wide range of vocabulary, genres and famous authors to enhance the exciting topics that we teach!
