The South Otterington Intent , Implementation and Impact Curriculum Overview

2019-20 SOtt Curriculum Long Term

English Policy 2020

Children are encouraged to express themselves imaginatively and accurately in oral and written work. Neat handwriting, accurate spelling, grammar and punctuation are essential if children’s ideas are to be passed on to others.  These skills, which are exemplified in the National Literacy Strategy are taught throughout the school.

From a range of graded reading schemes to a wealth of novels and factual books, we try to instil in the children enjoyment of the printed word.  Children are encouraged to take their reading books home each night.  We welcome parental involvement in the acquisition of reading skills. Children’s progress in reading is regularly tested.
