Reading at Hawthorns

We love reading and encourage children to read at every opportunity, both for pleasure and to support their learning.  We have a variety of reading scheme material including Oxford reading tree and PM readers and many others.  Children have a reading log and read to a variety of adults, both in school and at home, where their progress is logged and commented on.



Our approach to phonics at Hawthorns is integral to the development of all aspects of literacy.  We use the Department for Education Letters and Sounds  and Jolly Phonics Actions to support our phonics progression.
