Reading

At Hillside, it is our mission to ensure every child can read. We acknowledge that children learn at different rates and in different ways. Two of the many strategies and schemes we use are: Read Write Inc Phonics and Accelerated Reader.

Read Write Inc. Phonics

Read Write Inc. Phonics is an approach to teaching literacy that creates fluent readers, confident speakers and willing writers. It integrates phonics with comprehension, writing, grammar, spelling and handwriting using engaging partner work and drama. At Hillside, we use Read Write Inc Phonics from Nursery – Year 1, or until children are able to decode words/read confidently.

Accelerated Reader (AR)

Years 3-6 use Accelerated Reader. It is a reading program that helps teachers support and monitor children’s reading practice. Your child picks a book at their own level and reads it at their own pace. When finished, your child takes a short online quiz in school to measure how much of the book they understood.
