Writing is lead in school by Mrs. Blakely. Writing makes a significant contribution to the development of children as thinkers and learners. It is an area which is taught both discretely and as part of topic and science lessons. Children are given a wide variety of opportunities to write across a range of different genres. Teachers spend a lot of time choosing subject matter to inspire and enthuse young writers. Writing is valued across the school and displayed in a variety of areas. The link between reading and writing is very important and teachers use quality texts in the teaching of writing.
At Aintree Davenhill we aim to foster a love of reading, enjoyment of books and lifelong learning. Children begin to learn to read through sharing stories both in school and at home. A systematic phonics programme (Read, Write Inc) is the starting point for learning to read independently. The Read, Write Inc spelling programme is used in KS2. Children then go on to read colour banded books in KS1 and use the Accelerated Reading Programme in KS2. For further information please see the phonics and reading policies.
