At Tanworth in Arden Church of England Primary School and Nursery, we teach Literacy through a creative curriculum. We follow the current national curriculum. For example in Year 3 if the children were learning about the Romans, you might see them writing a play script about a Roman myth or legend.
KS1 follow a rigorous phonic programme, ensuring rapid progress in reading and writing. Writing is further developed across both key stages through a whole school focus on “Big Writing”, the culmination of previous creative input and immersion in a writing genre, role play, reading investigations, and work. Spelling, punctuation and grammar is integrated into all Literacy work through regular work on V.C.O.P (vocabulary, connectives, sentence openers and punctuation).
