At Allfarthing we aim to help children develop skills and knowledge that will enable them to communicate effectively and creatively with the world at large, through spoken and written language, respond critically to a wide range of texts and enjoy and appreciate literature and its rich variety.
We recognise and value the importance of nurturing, building and developing all aspects of English for our pupils, from their arrival in school to their transition to secondary school. This includes the development of spoken language, reading and writing skills across the curriculum. We provide opportunities for pupils to develop a creative interest and involvement in the performing arts such as drama, performance poetry, response to and involvement in theatre workshops. English is connected and taught through all subjects where reading, writing and spoken language are seen as the prime means to learn, absorb and communicate information.
In Early Years and KS1 Letters and Sounds with Jolly Phonics is the programme we use to teach early reading and writing at Allfarthing.
