Our written English and reading programmes are based on the New National Curriculum for England and Wales 2014. This promotes reading for comprehension and fluency. The reading programme is loosely similar the international Success for All. This programme improves teaching and learning with a focus on literacy. It empowers leadership as well as measuring real time progress in each child.
Big Write is an approach to teaching writing developed by Ros Wilson. The aim of The Big Write is to raise attainment level in speaking, listening and writing. This method promotes making sure that your child can tell a us what they want to say before they write to develop their higher level writing voice.
The children discuss and learn the features of each genre of writing (journalistic, play scripts, adventure stories) and write their own including our grammar focus for that week.
