English   

English plays an important part in the social and personal development of children.  We teach our pupils to read, write, speak and listen so as to promote not only enjoyment but also a sense of achievement.  We give our children opportunities to develop all their language skills through narratives, poetry, non-fiction and plays amongst other genres.

We provide a large and varied selection of books in the class and school library. We  actively encourage parents to support the child’s reading at home, making reading  pleasurable and free from pressure.

 

Phonics and Reading

In Reception we will teach your child to read using phonics. This is where the children learn the sounds each letter makes and blend these together to make words. In school we use 'Letters and Sounds' as the basis of the progression of sounds we teach.  We will send home reading books right from the start of Reception for you to read with your child. We use a range of different reading scheme books which are all linked to the phonic phase your child is at.  Click here to read our phonic policy.

Library

Mill Hill School has just redeveloped its library and has relocated it to the centre of school.  We are all enjoying using it!  The library contains a wide range of fiction and non fiction text and an up-to-date computer librarian system available. All children have access to the library for reading and lending use.
