‘Together we grow: Together we give’. Ezekiel 47:2
We are a school community and we are a family. We learn together, we support each other, we give our time, our kindness, our love and our compassion to those around us in our school and wider community. We help each other to be ourselves and to be proud of it and to grow in to the unique individuals we are, and as a result, we grow into the respectful and accepting community we all value so much- we are there for each other on each step of our journey.
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.
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 ...
