Our Vision: Children will develop the skills and knowledge that will enable them to communicate effectively and creatively through spoken and written language and equip them with the skills to become lifelong learners.

Reading together can build stronger relationships.


Reading provides parents with an opportunity to have a regular and shared event that both parent and child can look forward to. Furthermore, it provides children with feelings of attention, love, and reassurance which is key for nurturing and wellbeing Children across our school enjoy reading a variety of different texts.

Drama brings reading and texts alive. Children can gain a better understanding of text through physical movement and becoming ‘part’ of a text.

The Charge of the Light Brigade by Alfred Lloyd Tennyson.

Year 5/6 have worked hard on learning a poem.

Children looked at language and discussed the meaning of words before going on to work in groups to learn and perform the poem to others.
