We believe that every aspect of a child’s work is influenced by the quality of their language development. It is critical that they use language with imagination and accuracy. We teach English every day following the National Curriculum using a wide range of texts and styles. The skills learned at this time are then applied in other areas of the curriculum.

In KS1, we teach reading and spelling using The Read Write Inc System. The website has a parent support section with a host of useful videos. Find them here.

As a school we have decided to produce our own termly reading newsletter which is packed full of reading ideas and useful information. They can be found here, alongside any other enrichment activities we take part in as a school related to reading.
