At Homerswood School we know that being able to read, write and communicate are essential skills for life. We aim to develop in our children a love of reading that will continue with them long after they leave primary school.We teach children the skills for reading in order for children to read for pleasure as well support their learning across the curriculum.
We teach children the skill of writing in order to develop in them the confidence and skills to write for a range of purposes and audiences.
We aim to develop our children's speaking and listening skills so that they are confident speakers who are able to express their views and opinions for a variety of audiences.
We follow the principles set out in the National Curriculum and English is taught daily from Nursery to Year 6.
Our Brand New Library
Our library has had a fabulous overhaul and is now ready for use. Each class will visit the library weekly and choose books to read at home. We will advertise the brand new books through assemblies. In January, we are hoping to open the library up to families one day after school so you too can access an opportunity to read with your children.
