Hadlow Primary School offers a wide range of learning experiences, both curricular and extra-curricular.
At Hadlow Primary School we aim to provide an environment where children can learn to communicate efficiently, effectively and with enjoyment through printed and written English. In support of our aims, English is taught everyday in each classroom. We want to develop real writers who record for a purpose and an audience. Our writers will edit, revise and redraft their work like true authors with our support and guidance. We will build on your child's existing skills and develop them in partnership with you by encouraging independent home learning that re enforces what is being taught in class.
Every opportunity is taken, from the time your child enters school, to expose them to an attractive and stimulating array of books to develop a love and enthusiasm for reading. Your child should come to enjoy reading for its own sake, and to turn willingly to books as sources of pleasure and information.
Daily Phonics/Spelling and Guided Reading sessions are taught across KS1 and KS2, as well as discreet spelling, punctuation, grammar and handwriting lessons.
To teach computing we are currently using the Kent Scheme which focuses on Digital Literacy, IT and Computer Science.
We also run Espresso coding.
In Key Stage 1 your child will be taught to use ICT equipment and software to communicate and handle information, support their problem solving, recording and expressive work.
In Key Stage 2 your child will be encouraged to extend their range of ICT tools for communication, investigation and control.
