Literacy

The aims of the National Curriculum for English are to promote high standards of language and literacy by equipping pupils with a strong command of the spoken and written word, and to develop their love of literature through widespread reading for enjoyment. 

 

The national curriculum for English aims to ensure that all pupils: 

  • read easily, fluently and with good understanding 

  • develop the habit of reading widely and often, for both pleasure and information 

  • acquire a wide vocabulary, an understanding of grammar and knowledge of linguistic conventions for reading, writing and spoken language 

  • appreciate our rich and varied literary heritage 

  • write clearly, accurately and coherently, adapting their language and style in and for a range of contexts, purposes and audiences 

  • use discussion in order to learn; they should be able to elaborate and explain clearly their understanding and ideas 

  • are competent in the arts of speaking and listening, making formal presentations, demonstrating to others and participating in debate.

 

Pupils at Dunston Primary and Nursery School are taught literacy through daily Writing and SPaG sessions, a daily phonics session in Key Stage 1 and a Guided reading session in key stage 2.
