Literacy 2015 - 2016 and Overview of the Year

A new school year and yet again we can look forward to a range of exciting events to promote Literacy across the school. 

In Autumn Term we will be participating in a spelling competition at Eaton Bank and later in the term we will enter a letter writing competition designed by the Royal Mail. As we near Christmas, Key Stage One and Reception will be developing their drama skills through their Christmas Performance, whilst we all enjoy another trip to The Pantomime!

In Spring Term we, back by popular demand is our Shakespeare Week. After last year's launch, the children fed back that they had really enjoyed the week and many were inspired to read more Shakespeare. As a result we have now included this event in our yearly long term Literacy plan and each class will study a text from the wonderful world of Shakespeare! Of course we can't let World Book Day pass and as always a theme will be chosen and details given nearer the time. 


In Summer Term we will be holding a whole school Spelling Bee. Lists of words have been given out with the parents pack that you will have received at the start of the term (after the parents meeting 8/9/15.) We have been rolling out our new spelling programme which is now in place across the school and we continue to have spelling on a high list of priorities, along with reading of course. 

Towards the end of the Summer Term, Key Stage 2 will be developing their acting skills as they work towards their summer performance, whilst Year 6 will also be practising their Leavers Play. 

Of course, as a school we are continuing to expose the children to a huge range of genres, both fiction and non fiction and reading remains a major focus for us. Please endeavour to read with your child on a daily bases, even if it's for just 10 minutes and in school we continue to deliver our daily guided reading sessions. If you are struggling to engage your child in reading, have a look at the Reading, A Guide for Parents pages on the website for further ideas and top tips and keep it fun!

Finally, if you have anything Literacy based that you would like to discuss, please do come and see me!
