Primary English

 

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.”

Dr Seuss

 

At Hollinwood Academy, we believe in the teaching of Communication, Reading and Writing Skills as the foundation for successful learning.

It is our aim across the Primary phase to develop these skills in all of our children.

Communication – We provide English lessons that can be adapted to suit all leaners through a variety of approaches so that they can become confident communicators.

Reading – We stimulate a love for reading by choosing accessible and engaging stories or texts, which inspire our learners to become passionate readers.

Writing – We provide all learners with a range of literacy skills for life, to support them now, and in the future.

Our Assessment Tool is Dashboard, which breaks down learning into small, accessible and achievable steps. You can find out more about our Assessment Tools here:
