Literacy at Henry Whipple Primary School

At Henry Whipple we aim to immerse children in a range of speaking and listening, reading and writing opportunities. We believe in a cross curricular approach, using motivating, enriching experiences that enthuse and engage children in their learning.

Our Curriculum Aims

We aim to ensure that all children;

  • develop fluency and a love of reading
  • are able to apply their reading and writing skills in other areas of the curriculum including a range of contexts and purposes
  • develop their literacy skills through a range of media, formats and activities
  • develop their vocabulary through reading and discussion
  • are able to use spelling strategies in their writing
  • develop clear handwriting

Our curriculum focus areas for this year

  • ensure children make and exceed progress in reading and writing
  • develop learning together events so that parents are able to support children at home
  • continue to develop assessment and intervention
