At King Charles I School language is crucial to the development of thought. Through language, learners explore their world and their views of it. Speaking and listening, reading and writing are therefore inseparable, interdependent and of equal importance and are treated as such across the curriculum.

One key focus for this year will be reading but, since reading, and reading for pleasure, is so closely linked to writing and talk, the strategies we put in place to support one skill will impact the others. From the re-development of the library on the Hillgrove Road site to specific ‘reading’ lessons for Year 7, we are committed to developing competent, enthusiastic readers who understand the link between reading, writing, effective use of language and success.

The purpose of this page is to keep you updated with what our literacy focus is for each half term and to give you as much help as we can in supporting your son/daughter at home.
