Loscoe C of E Primary School and Nursery

We may be small, but together we can make a big difference.


Reading, writing and phonics action plans 2020-2021

At Loscoe CofE Primary School, we believe Literacy to be central to the curriculum. By developing pupils’ abilities to read, write, speak and listen for a wide range of purposes, we hope that our children develop into effective learners across the curriculum.  We want children to become enthusiastic, independent and reflective readers both in school and the wider world.


We aim to develop reading by:

• Promoting reading for pleasure

• Teaching children to recognise and engage with subject specific vocabulary.

• Promoting understanding and interpretation of the  language used

• Asking children to understand and interpret whole texts


We aim to develop writing by asking children to:

• Spell words correctly and use correct sentence structure and punctuation

• communicate precisely and accurately

• Create, shape and organise texts effectively and according to purpose

• Develop fluent, legible handwriting


 We aim to develop speaking and listening by teaching children to:

• Speak confidently in a range of setting

 • Actively listen and respond in a range of settings

 • Interact and discuss effectively with peers


If you have any queries regarding Literacy in School, please ask for Miss Davy.
