At Corbridge C of E First School, we wish to ensure that all children have their individual strengths acknowledged and challenged to ensure that they receive Literacy teaching which addresses their next steps for learning. We aim to develop pupils’ spoken language through embedding oracy not just within Literacy lessons but across the curriculum. We promote the acquisition of new vocabulary and encourage its application across all subjects. We strive for our children to be able to create texts that are technically accurate but that also meet the needs of their intended purpose and audience. Most importantly we aim to create a writing environment which allows the children to experiment with their ideas, learn from one another and culture an enjoyment of writing.
