Reading Committee, led by Mrs Geary

Our Reading Ambassadors support the implementation of the school's Reading intent, focussing on ensuring that every child leaves Hillcroft enthused about, and engaged with, reading.  Reading Ambassadors are passionate readers themselves, and promote this love across the school.

This year, their focus will continue to be developing this engagement with reading across the school as well as developing the role of the Library and the management of it.  

The love of reading is further promoted through the following initiatives across the school:

  1. Class reading
  2. Disciplinary reading opportunities 
  3. Reading with the community
  4. Staff book recommendations to encourage reading at home promoted through the school Newsletter and then displayed in the Reception area for all to enjoy
  5. ‘Tell me a Story’ reading environments
  6. Collective reading in the school library
  7. Celebrating World Book Day
  8. Reading competitions 
  9. Providing autonomy for children to choose to read during free time
  10. Book Talk lessons in KS2
  11. Reading sheds in the playgrounds for children to have access to reading books at all times during the day
