Reading and Writing



READING - September 2016

At Higher Lane Primary school we consider reading to be of great importance and the key to all other aspects of learning as it impacts on everything a child does.  Please click on the links below to find some useful information.

Phonics 2016

Teaching phonics in Key Stage 1 is the key to developing your child's ability to read and write. We continue to value your support so we have included some information to help you.

Accelerated Reading 2016

Your children are finding great success with our Accelerated Reading program. We have shared our success with other schools in a seminar and other schools in the area have now introduced the program. We have also purchased many new books to enhance the reading experiences of your children. Thank you for all your continued support with your child's reading. We have included some information about Accelerated Reading to explain how the program works in school. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask your child's teacher or Mrs Green.
