Our Primary English curriculum places high quality children's literature at its core and is designed to develop a life-long love of reading and writing. We work in partnership with The Literacy Curriculum and have a book based approach to topics and English lessons. Through fantastic texts, children explore language, stories, and ideas. Reading and writing take place everyday. We encourage parents/carers to support Reading at home and to come in to school to read with children and take part in library sessions during Family Reading Friday. 

Reading Pledge

We love welcoming authors to our school. They share their journey as an author and give us their 'Top Tips' for writing.  These moments are in special and help to develop a life long passion for reading in all of our children.

Our outdoor Reading Snug is a warm cosy environment, giving the children the opportunity to read outside during Opal Play. We were very luck to have Jasmine Richards officially open the Reading Snug. 

In November we celebrated Library Week. This was a great way for the children to celebrate and learn about our great library. During this week the children took trips to Streatham Library and explored different activities relating to books and how to access the library. The Governers and teaching staff also came in to read.
