Reading Intent

At Hampton Junior School, our intent is that all pupils leave us and enter their next stage of education, as literate individuals, who have reached the end point outlined by the National Curriculum, as required for our pupils transferring to secondary school.

It is very much our intention that all of our pupils foster a love for reading and we strive to develop in them a life-long passion for reading. We intend to develop each pupil’s reading ability with fluency, an understanding of genres and most of all enjoyment.


We understand fully that reading is an essential tool for life and that it underpins pupils’ performance in all areas of the curriculum. 


From the moment a child enters Hampton Junior School, they will be engulfed in and exposed to a wide range of texts and an array of opportunities to be read to, read by and read with.

 

Reading Awards

Each academic year, pupils can earn Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum awards for Reading. Pupils must start on Bronze and work their way up to Platinum.

To take part, print off the challenge (or ask your class teacher for one), complete it at home on a separate piece of paper and hand it to your class teacher to mark. You will then receive your award in your year group meeting.

Writing

At Hampton Junior School, a pupil of English language and literature will be able to adapt their written language as a result of the receptive and productive English skills they have acquired. They will be able to write eloquently and with increased stamina across a range of genres while developing a love of writing.
