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.

We love Active Maths ! Today we played a ball game to help us to work out percentages of completed and uncompleted passes. We were able to use it to problem solve and discuss mathematically and also to evaluate our performance as a team.
