English and Maths Curriculum
At the same time, by teaching reading, writing, speaking, and listening as discrete categories, we encourage the development of all round literacy skills.
During our literacy lessons, our pupils engage in reading, writing, and speaking through our ‘Read and Respond’ series, which has lessons based on best-loved children’s books.
Our teacher’s use the Read and Respond Resource Packs which make an in-depth analysis of each book to get the whole class thinking about the story and expressing their thoughts aloud and in writing.
- Shared Reading
The whole class take it in turns to read extracts of the book.
- Group Discussion
Pupils discuss feelings and ideas around the book.
- Get Writing
The pupils do activities that help to structure their ideas about the book.
Each learning session ends with assessment activities to check that pupils are learning and to highlight areas which need development.
