Reading at Hucklow

Reading at Hucklow

 

Whole School Vision
At Hucklow Primary School we aim for children to become independent and confident readers with a lifelong love of reading.  We ensure that all children access an enriched curriculum which allows them to start reading early as we believe that we learn to read and then we read to learn.

At Hucklow we enjoy whole school book celebrations and we highlight authors and poems through our termly competitions.  We work closely with our local library to help encourage our children’s love for reading and to give children access to a wide range of books/texts.

All children engage in specific high quality reading sessions; these follow a progressive structure beginning in FS2.  Benchmarking and robust assessment strategies take place half termly to ensure texts are matched accurately to the children’s needs and abilities and interests. We invest in high quality reading books, Accelerated Reader to accelerate progress for children and regular reading activities and events which strongly promote our love for reading at Hucklow.

We expect children to read at home every day and this is recorded in their home reading diaries.
