  • Through the provision of the literacy learning opportunities we aim to provide an environment in which children can develop and communicate through the four modes of language – reading, writing, speaking and listening.
  • We have a wide range of books available for children to read both in school and at home including ICT based materials.
  • Parents/Carers can purchase book bags from school.
  • It is important for parents to be supportive, enabling their child to make progress in reading.
  • Children are taught both to read and understand books from a variety of different styles and for different purposes.
  • We encourage pupils to form opinions and be able to discuss what they have read.
  • Writing opportunities are closely linked both with work children have done in reading and other subjects across the curriculum. Children are helped to develop a writing style that is both joined and legible. We also encourage children to develop their writing for a range of different purposes.
  • We have placed an increasing emphasis on speaking and listening. This is developed through weekly speaking and listening assemblies in which all children are given an opportunity to participate.
  • Pupils are also encouraged to respond to others using more detail as they progress through school.
  • Children are assessed throughout school to give a clear picture of their progress. Those children needing extra support will have access to a range of different strategies the school is currently running to enable children to make the best progress possible.
