From a story to a newspaper article, an advert to a brochure, a poem to a play, at St. Paul’s, we encourage both the reading for pleasure and the writing of a variety of genres by celebrating our heritage of great classic and contemporary authors from all over the world. Children are proud of their writing and present it to high standards with focus on joined handwriting.
Our teaching and learning approach includes challenging and engaging tasks as well as effective collaborations between staff and pupils that creates an range of celebrations and experiences such as Roald Dahl’s Day, World book Day and World Poetry Day just to name a few. We want all of our children to recognise that reading is the gateway to all learning and work with them to develop a love of reading and writing for pleasure. We achieve this by providing them with stimulating learning experiences and by working in partnership with parents and carers.
