Literacy  - Curriculum Intent

When our children leave Bottesford Junior School we expect them to read fluently, express preferences and opinions about the texts that they read and have a genuine love of reading. We want them to read for pleasure, having had access to a wide range of text types, genres and authors in order for them to make informed opinions about their favourites. We want our children to write with confidence and accuracy for a variety of purposes and audiences whilst developing their own individual flair.  In addition, we want our children to be able to write with grammatical accuracy and be able to apply spelling patterns correctly using a neat handwriting style.


We aim to expose our children to a wide range of vocabulary so that they able to decipher new words and then use them when speaking both informally and formally, oracy forming an important life-skill. We also aim for our children to apply all of these English skills to all areas of the curriculum.  When delivering our literacy curriculum, we aim to expose our pupils to a rich collection of resources that provide a wide mix of ethnic diversity and non-gender stereotypes.
