Literacy is an integral element of our whole school curriculum. Teachers use creative and purposeful ways to engage pupils in their learning, raising standards and narrowing gaps in attainment.

At the heart of every life experience, children need to be able to communicate effectively and creatively with the world at large through spoken and written language. Here at Llangrove CE Academy, we encourage every child to enjoy and appreciate the rich variety of literature so that they can respond with knowledge and enthusiasm.

In Speaking & Listening we:

  • Encourage all children to express their opinions, articulate feelings and respond appropriately to a range of situations
  • Enable pupils to participate in different groupings to present ideas with confidence, valuing the views of others

In Reading we:

  • Teach phonics to appreciate the awareness of the link between sounds and letters (using ORT Floppy Phonics)
  • Give every child their own personal reading record and books to take home to read with parents and carers which challenge and engage pupils to develop their own love of learning
  • Provide a range of reading opportunities to help children to understand the choices of vocabulary and structures that authors use

In Writing we:

  • Set high expectations that all our children will take pride in their work, having a fluent handwriting style (using PenPals handwriting scheme)
  • Provide inspiring activities to motivate children so that they see themselves as ‘writers’
  • Focus on the essential skills of grammar, punctuation and spelling alongside developing the powers of imagination and inventiveness
