At Hudson Road, the teaching of reading is at the heart of everything that we do. To be able to read confidently is the key to learning all across the curriculum. Reading should be a lifelong pleasure.
Our priority is to make sure that every pupil is a confident, literate young person by the time that they move to secondary school. We teach phonics using the 'Sounds and Letters' scheme with Jolly Phonics resources and use 'Oxford Reading Tree' as our core reading scheme starting with books linked to our phonics programme for EY/KS1 from "Floppy's Phonics".
Staff use a wide range of strategies when teaching reading skills to ensure individual success. We teach for reading mastery.
