English sits at the heart of our curriculum; it is through language, story and text that children learn to form concepts, connect ideas and express themselves. Head over to our Reading page under Parent/carers to find out more about how we at St Mary's promote our love of reading.
Shared reading is a great way to develop children’s language and communication and to boost their reading skills. Regular reading routines can offer lots of opportunities for learning during school closures.
