Help your child read & write at home

At Hillbrook we believe that language is the root of all knowledge. Over the last couple of years we have invested a lot of time and effort into making sure your child enjoys a rich and varied curriculum, with literature at the core. Teachers carefully choose texts which are both enjoyable and enriching. This helps inspire the children to become better learners. Reading at home is essential for your child's progress; therefore we request you read together every night.
