At Henry Hinde Junior School, we are consistently developing the curriculum that we provide for our children. Our learners are involved in the planning of their topics, we then involve the community in the reviewing of our topics to ensure that we provide our learners with exciting, stimulating topics which the children become fully absorbed in using a cross-curricular approach. We strive to encompass as many curriculum subjects into each topic, making them relevant and meaningful for our children.
Reading is at the heart of all we do at Henry Hinde Junior School. We currently use Oxford reading books, which are levelled for each child using assessment and teacher judgments. The reading scheme is just one of many reading opportunities in school including; formal reading skill lessons, library books and Read Write Inc phonic sessions for those children who need to develop this skill. All are designed to challenge and encourage a lifelong passion for reading. Children are encouraged to read at home regularly too and this can be recorded in their Reading diary.
