Reading is at the heart of everything we do. We offer a core of quality texts from our well-stocked Prep library - and our experienced librarian will find something for everyone, meaning children leave Prep with a love of reading for pleasure.
Writing in Prep is linked to the core texts. We provide children with tasks that are focused on an audience, have a clear purpose and are contextual. Children have time to draft and edit, learning that writing is an art form and they build on their skills as they advance through Prep.
We follow a specific programme for phonics in the Early Years (Read, Write, Inc) that enables children to read quickly and confidently. This ensures a strong grounding for each individual to access the rest of the curriculum as they progress in their Prep years.
