Our approach to English
At Tiger Primary School, we recognise that English skills underpin all elements of the school curriculum and are an essential life-skill. Considering the fundamental importance of Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing in everyday life, we are driven by the need to develop each learner’s writing ability, thus enabling them to play a full part in society.
The key to teaching literacy is to combine the teaching of reading and writing skills within a context that is meaningful, purposeful and creative. The ability to read and write is not an end in itself. Phonics, grammar and vocabulary are the building blocks of literacy and it is the art of combining these blocks effectively which is the real skill in order to give all children the tools to be successful. At Tiger we will appropriately support and challenge all pupils in order to adequately enable them to make successful transitions through each stage of their education and lives.
