Writing at Eyrescroft

At Eyrescroft we plan our writing to link to our cornerstones topic. Each week we take part in a topic writing session which all form our ‘Journal of Writing’. We then publish a piece to go in our presentation folder. We are very proud of our finished pieces and to see the progress we make with our writing as we move through school.

Handwriting at Eyrescroft

At Eyrescroft we believe that presentation is a key factor to encouraging our reader to engage with our writing. We follow the Nelson Handwriting scheme.

Reading at Eyrescroft

At Eyrescroft we follow letters and sounds for the teaching of phonics. Children are encouraged to read at home as much as they can. In KS2 children have access to our accelerated reader scheme. Children read books appropriate for their reading level which they then take a quiz on. They have to try and meet the target set by their teacher. We are relaunching this scheme this summer term and each week we will see which class has got the most quizzes correct and will receive the accelerated reader trophy. Who will be the first to get it?
