The children's ability to communicate in English is key to their success in future life.
We concentrate on the development of speaking and listening, reading and writing throughout school.
In order to teach the children to read we teach Reading and Writing through the Read Write Inc programme which is very effective. This starts in reception and the aim is that all children are able to read simple text by the age of 6.
We also have the Reading recovery programme in place which effectively supports children who are struggling to read.
Once children have reached the set level, they no longer take part in Read Write Inc and instead go back to literacy lessons. At this point children really focus on the comprehension of text.
Please see the RWI page to find out more information regarding read write Inc.
We will be adding photos of the children's literacy work in the gallery or year group sections of the website.
