Literacy

214sml318pxWe believe that literacy holds the key to a successful future for our pupils, through confidence in reading, writing and communication skills. Creating a love for reading and writing is at the heart of our literacy curriculum and we strive to teach lessons that are motivating, fun and inspiring for all pupils because this means they will make greater progress.

The topics are exciting and draw on aspects of ICT, outdoor learning, real life scenarios and a multitude of other cross curricular learning opportunities. We use focussed targets to ensure children know what they need to do to develop their reading and writing and we celebrate success and encourage all children that they are capable of succeeding.

We believe all children should succeed to their full potential and we provide intervention for children who need extra support as well as opportunities for children with particular skills in writing or reading to develop in particular areas such as creative writing.
