Most of us read without even thinking about it. It’s a skill we take for granted, yet one that is essential for being able to succeed in life. As a child grows up, being able to read well not only enables them to discover new facts and to learn at school, but also opens them up to a world of new ideas, stories and opportunities. We want all our children to leave Hinckley Parks Primary school with an ability to read which accompanies a desire to read.
Good reading involves a combination of word recognition and comprehension.
- Skilled word reading involves both the speedy working out of the pronunciation of unfamiliar printed words (decoding) and the speedy recognition of familiar printed words.
- Good comprehension draws from linguistic knowledge (in particular of vocabulary and grammar) and on knowledge of the world. Comprehension skills develop through pupils’ experience of high-quality discussion…as well as from reading and discussing a range of stories, poems and nonfiction.
Research shows that learning to read - and to love to read - is directly linked to children's success at school and beyond. So how can you best support your child at home?
The Oxford Owl website provides great tips for supporting your child with reading and also has 250 free e-books for you to read with your child at home.

At Hinckley Parks Primary school we use the Spelling Shed programme to support our teaching of spelling. The focus of the programme is on the teaching of spelling, which embraces knowledge of spelling conventions – patterns and rules; but integral to the teaching is the opportunity to promote the learning of spellings, including statutory words, common exceptions and personal spellings. KS2 classes participate in a 20 minute spelling lesson twice a week. Each pupil from Year 1 – Year 6 have their own individual logins to access fun and interactive games and resources which can be accessed in school and at home. Online assignments can be set alongside their weekly spelling homework that is tested the following week.
