Key Stage 1 and 2:
The Literacy framework has been organised to provide a whole school progression for the development of skills, knowledge and understanding. In daily lessons children are taught skills in reading and writing through a range of planned activities. Regular and shared guided group work in reading and writing is led by the teacher or another adult in the classroom. Speaking and listening skills are taught through circle time activities and developed across the curriculum. The school has a good range of fiction and non-fiction books in the library and classrooms and a mixed range of reading scheme books to develop independent reading.
