Key Stage 1

We believe that reading is a valuable and rewarding experience and that laying a firm foundation in this crucial area will allow children to access all areas of the curriculum successfully. We believe that success in reading opens doors to a world of knowledge. As reading is a complex skill with many components, Hardy Mill Primary School has adopted a comprehensive and consistent approach to the teaching of these skills throughout the school. At Hardy Mill we aim to promote a love of reading as well as ensuring our children become skilled and fluent readers.
