Literacy

In the Pre-Prep children’s natural love of stories is fostered from the outset. They are encouraged to develop creativity in their writing, maturing into confident independent writers. As their writing develops we help the children to balance creativity with accuracy
We place an emphasis on developing each child’s reading ability. Our aim is to instil a love of reading and an enjoyment of books for life. We aim to hear each child read every day, either to their Form Teacher or a Teaching Assistant.
Poetry and drama are used to help language development and enrich the literacy curriculum. Children learn and develop their handwriting style, grammar, spelling and punctuation skills throughout the Pre-Prep.
