I strongly believe that reading is the foundation to children’s learning. It develops children’s mind and enables them to use their imagination and think creatively. When children read, they open the door to a world of adventures and endless possibilities. Not only can children get lost in their thoughts but they are able to transfer the skills of reading to other areas of their learning.
As a school, we want our children to be passionate and excited about reading. We want reading to stimulate children’s imagination and expand their understanding of the world.
Writing is the freedom to express yourself and communicate your ideas to others.
At All Saints, our aim is to provide our children with the tools and skills necessary in order for them to become successful writers. We want our children to understand the process of writing and provide children with the opportunity to express themselves creatively in different ways to appeal to different text types and audiences.
