Our fundamental focus in the early years is the development of reading skills for which we use the Ginn Reading Scheme and its accompanying Reading Skills workbooks. The Nelson Spelling and Grammar scheme is also used. The children are encouraged to read both for leisure and for research purposes and may borrow books from the school library.
Creative writing encourages children to allow their imaginations to run free and our younger pupils enjoy displaying their colourfully illustrated work in their classrooms. As children move up the school they are shown how to analyse texts and poetry in greater depth and undertake a wide variety of creative writing assignments.
