Literacy across Key Stage 1 and 2

Literacy Tree planning sequences provide high quality learning journeys for the pupils that lead to excellent writing outcomes alongside the development of reading skills. 

VIPERS skills and vocab are used throughout the school in the teaching of reading. Comprehension is taught and made a focus alongside word reading and pupils are aware of their own progress.

Class books are diverse and ambitious and reading for pleasure is celebrated across the school.
