When our children leave Brigg Primary School we hope they will be avid readers; children who read fluently and widely and are able to express preferences and opinions about the texts they have read.
We want them to read for pleasure, having had access to a wide range of text types, genres and authors (both local and international) in order for them to make informed opinions about their favourites and become life-long readers.
We understand the vital role played by parents and carers in the development of reading and writing and in the nurturing of positive habits, particularly in attitudes towards reading. We welcome this and value their contribution.
We support all children to write with confidence and accuracy for a variety of purposes and audiences whilst developing their own individual flair. 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 are able to decipher new words and then use them when speaking both informally and formally and for this vocabulary to ‘stick’ in their minds.
More than anything, we want our children to have the English skills to enable them to reach their full potential and become well-rounded global citizens.
