'Learning Together for Life'
We aim to develop pupils’ abilities within an integrated programme of Speaking & Listening, Reading and Writing. Pupils will be given opportunities to interrelate the requirements of English within a broad and balanced curriculum: with opportunities to consolidate and reinforce taught Literacy skills. We aim to equip pupils with knowledge and skills and the ability to apply these to meet the needs of present and future society.
At Hartford Manor we aim to encourage pupils to:
Speak fluently and listen with attention and understanding
Read and write with confidence, fluency and understanding
Be able to use a full range of reading cues (phonic, graphic, syntactic, contextual) to monitor their reading and correct their own mistakes
Have interest in words and their meanings; developing a growing vocabulary in spoken and written forms
Understand a range of text types and genres – be able to write in a variety of styles and forms appropriate to the situation
Have fluent and legible handwriting
Plan, draft, revise and edit their own writing
Be interested in books. Read with enjoyment and evaluate and justify their preferences
Develop their powers of imagination, inventiveness and critical awareness
The Friends of Hartford Manor have agreed to match our annual commitment of £500 to top up the library. Thank you!
