In English & supported throughout all subjects, we aim to empower & enrich our children’s vocabulary & so prepare them for the next stage in their educational journey (& beyond) so that no child is hindered or held back by a deficit of language as a result of deprivation. We want them to be able to articulate themselves & their learning through a wide bank of subject specific terminology as well as being creative & innovative in their speech & writing. We aim to inspire our children to become fluent, confident life-long readers who can discuss the joy of literature as well as develop their own style & expression through wide opportunities for writing.
READy Brek is a great way to start the morning!
We have all heard the saying that 'Breakfast is the most important
meal of the day', well here at St Mary's we believe that reading
is the most important skill you can develop with your children at
home. We want to foster a love of reading with all families in
school, which is why we have our weekly READy Brek event.
All families are welcome to join us in the school hall every
Wednesday morning from 8:40-9:00, to look at books and other
reading materials together. We have a selection of
picture books, novels, magazines, bilingual books, and annuals-
so there should be something for every taste!
