Literacy

We use the National Curriculum to guide our Literacy teaching. Our literacy lessons include reading, speaking and listening, writing, spelling, handwriting, punctuation and grammar (SPAG). Children have daily literacy lessons and we use a variety of approaches to engage, excite and motivate the children.  Our literacy lessons link to our topics so that children have a wide range of opportunities to be immersed in their learning and apply their skills. We pride ourselves on knowing our children very well so the teachers use personalised approaches to teaching. We teach spelling through a structured spelling programme. We instil in children a love of reading and ensure that class reading corners have a range of texts to excite the children.
