Learning to read so we can read to learn and gain pleasure is at the heart of all areas of the curriculum. Early reading is therefore our first, foremost and central priority in school so all children are readers. Books are enjoyed and used across all curriculum areas as highly valued hooks, tools and a way of escaping in to other worlds, times, places and situations.

Active English

Our SPaG curriculum is also taught actively through PE. Staff design meaningful and purposeful opportunities to develop important grammar, punctuation and spelling skills.

Here are some examples of the activities our children have taken part in ...

We love Active English! Today we were collecting adjectives and playing ‘rob the nest’. We had to work as a team, think creatively and spell correctly. We had to work out which letters were consonants and which were vowels and collect cones accordingly. It was good fun!
