Reading at Harewood
We use graded reading schemes in school that support the Primary Strategy: Letters and Sounds. We involve parents a great deal in the teaching of reading. In addition to reading schemes we have a large selection of good story books to widen the children’s interest in reading. Children are encouraged to choose their own books from colour coded sections.
Our Keystage 1 children are taught to read through systematic synthetic phonics, we use Rigby Star books in school.

We have a breakfast club operating which runs from 8.15 am until 8.45 am. The club is subsidised by school for everyone to keep the cost low, the cost is currently £1 per day per child; however there is an additional subsidy for children who are now or who have ever been in receipt of free school meals and they can come to breakfast club for free.
