We are already seeing great results with the children. If you would like to find out more, please click on the link below which will provide you with an outline of the scheme.

Parent Letter- Our New Reading Scheme

 

English

We are often asked whether there are any books which we can recommend for pupils. The website: https://schoolreadinglist.co.uk shows lots of good choices for individual year groups. We are using the 'Pathways' teaching approach from The Literacy Company, which provides a scaffold for children to base their own writing. It also ensures that they are exposed to a range of quality texts as they make they way through school.
