Welcome to the Literacy section of the Curriculum. We take pride in our handwriting, content and written presentation throughout the school year. Our literacy, science and cross curricular books reflect this hard work.
Each year we choose a text or event around which to focus our writing.This is then collated to form a whole school display where the children, staff, parents and visitors can enjoy the published work.

Literacy is taught throughout the school, we use 'Talk for Writing' and cross curricular themes to provide the children with opportunites for all genres. Each class has high quality displays as well as books that contain the pupil's work - literacy.topic. science and RE.
From EYFS through to Year 6 children are using grammar, punctuation and spelling strategies to help with their writing.
Reading through the school scheme, guided, shared and whole class texts encourages pupil's to have a love of books both fiction and non-fiction.
Spoken language is given a high priority in our school. we encourage the children to use correct language and grammar. Along side speaking, listening is equally important.We work together to model and promote both literacy skills.Drma and role play across the school is a fun way to develop speaking and listening. A trip to the EYFS classroom is a great place to start.
