Literacy at Laureate
You might have heard your children talking about the new reading books that we have been enjoying in English lessons this term: we have spent nearly ten thousand pounds on new books to support our new literacy curriculum, from authors such as Malory Blackman, Charles Dickens, Beatrix Potter, Floella Benjamin, Michael Bond and Michael Morpurgo. The new curriculum has been written by our trust, Unity Schools Partnership, and is being adapted by our staff to meet the needs of your children. It covers reading, writing, oracy and language development, which means that we will no longer be using the Powerful Words Project, although we will continue to use similar approaches to help children to expand their vocabulary, particularly linked to other subjects.
