At Hillsgrove, we believe all pupils, whatever their background, have a right to access the best that has been said and thought. This includes a variety of writers, from all parts of the world, and thinkers from all the ages. The curriculum ensures that pupils are knowledgeable enough about the world around them to transform it in the future.

 

As part of this we ensure that children are given access to a range of texts which challenge them, including those with Archaic Language, that time shift and that have more than one narrator. Whilst these are very challenging we Pre learn the vocabulary, read in small chunks and then close read and over read the textsw to support pupil understanding and to build vocabulary.

 

Parents are encouraged to support their children in pre reading these texts prior to them being started in class and during coverage. To support parents with this the lists below are given out to Year Groups at the start of the year.
