Reading, writing and spoken language underpins learning across the whole curriculum, developing communication skills that will enable our children to succeed long after they have left Great Wood.

We aim to foster a life-long love of reading and develop confident, fluent readers. Our English curriculum enables children to speak and write fluently to communicate their ideas and emotions. Providing purposeful opportunities to learn and develop these skills, along with our embedded key drivers, ultimately helps our children become successful members of society in an ever-changing world.
