“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”

- Dr Seuss

At Tiger primary we promote a love of reading and expose our children to ‘real’ books, not merely the reading schemes we have to support learning.

Writing is taught across the curriculum and English Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling (EGPS) is viewed as an essential part of learning. Our children write for ‘real’ purposes and are encouraged to widen their vocabulary; being introduced to new words each day. 

We value neat presentation and teach our children to write in a cursive script. As children progress into KS2 and develop their cursive, they will begin to work towards writing in pen. When a teacher sees consistently joined handwriting they will nominate the child to receive their 'pen license' which will be presented to them in Friday's celebration assembly.
