Reading at Hillsborough


At school we teach reading with a variety of approaches. In classes you would see a mixture of children reading in groups, children reading together with specific roles in a group, children reading with buddies and children reading individually to adults. We love reading!


To continue our diverse approach, we do not use one particular reading scheme either. Our books are selected from Collins Big Cats, Heinemann Story World, Rigby Rockets, Oxford Reading Tree and a mix of contemporary and classic literature. We feel that this gives our children a window into the vast amount of wonderful, varied literature out of school and encourages a real love of reading which we are proud to endorse.


All of our children have access to our wonderful library during the school day and also after school on Mondays. The fantastic range of fiction and non- fiction books on offer also helps to develop a genuine desire to read within our school community.
