Reading and writing are key skills that are developed and applied across the whole curriculum.

The school uses Accelerated Reader, which allows the children to select books at an appropriate reading level. The children can earn points through completing quizzes about their books. The Accelerated Reader BookFinder tool can help parents/carers to find books to read at home.

Talk for Writing strategies are used across the school to develop writing. We encourage children to learn poems, songs and stories by heart. If pupils can tell a story or text they are more likely to be able to write it. For more information, please speak to your child’s class teacher.

Spellings are taught regularly and are sent home once a week.
