Reading is an integral part of the Hampstead Hill School curriculum. We aim to foster an enjoyment of reading and a love of books. Children read daily on a one-to-one basis with a member of staff and also take part in paired reading with a friend and guided reading sessions in small groups. Upon joining the Upper School children become members of Keats Community Library where they are encouraged to select books of their own choice to take home and share with their families.
‘’My favourite thing is sometimes for homework we have to discuss our books at home.’
‘I love going to the library because I like to choose lots of books to take out.’
‘I like reading the books at school because they have lots of funny bits’
