At Marshland Primary Academy, our intent is to deliver a curriculum which develops a love of reading to help pupils know more, remember more and understand more. We believe that creating a culture of reading is a vital tool in ensuring our children are given the best life chances. Cultivating readers with a passion for a wide range of materials will ensure that the children’s love of reading will extend far beyond the classroom and allow them to build on their skills independently through a real curiosity and thirst for knowledge. At Marshland Primary Academy, we believe that the ability to read is vital to pupils’ learning and progress across all areas of the curriculum, for the opportunity to be independent and in their future life choices. It is crucial in developing children’s self-confidence and motivation.
At Marshland Primary Academy, the intent of our English curriculum is to deliver a writing curriculum that develops learning, and results in the acquisition of knowledge and skills so that all pupils know more, remember more and understand more. We recognise that writing is integral to all aspects of life and we mindfully endeavour to ensure that children develop a lifelong, healthy and enthusiastic attitude towards writing. The skill of writing enables pupils to communicate with themselves and others while documenting and conveying their knowledge and ideas. Building on experiences, it encourages expression and higher order thinking skills to develop. By creating a culture of writing in our school ensures our children are given the best opportunities to build their capacity and confidence in a range of writing styles.
