The key skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening open up a world of learning in school and in the wider lives of our children. We believe children who are read to and then read them themselves develop a richer vocabulary and understanding of language which, in turn allows them to become effective writers in a range of styles. Most importantly, we want to engender a love of and enthusiasm for language and develop the natural talents and inclinations our children have.
All of our children record their reading using the Go Read App. In this way we can keep a comprehensive record of when and who our child have read with throughout their school career.
Our English teaching is based on a range of approaches that we adapt to suit the needs of our children. Below are examples of some of the programmes we use at different ages and stages:
Read theory - KS2 Comprehension
Spelling frame - Year 1-6 spelling practice
