Power of reading

As a school we are committed to ensuring our children are articulate and confident to challenge and protect the amazing world God created for them and future generations.

We have carefully selected high quality texts that broaden our pupils understanding of world issues and give them opportunities to build opinions and knowledge that will stand them in good stead to change our world for the better. We have ensured that the learning across the school journey gives all of our children an opportunity to cover the national curriculum requirements but also expose them to lives beyond our community.

The long term plans show how the books weave together the learning across the curriculum and how this will build a rounded picture for our children. We also believe this will really enhance the writing opportunities as the purpose for writing will be real.

Each term we will also hold a celebration of learning for the children. This may be for families or the local community and will be a chance for the children to show case their new knowledge and celebrate all they have achieved.
