‘The more that you read, the more that you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you will go’ Dr Seuss
At Zetland we would like our children to enjoy reading and develop a love of books that lasts a lifetime. We want to help our children to get a ‘quick start’ with their decoding skills and become competent decoders at a very early age. Our children will develop a secure understanding of the books that they read and be able to share thoughts and feelings about books as they become the confident and knowledgeable readers of the future.
‘You can make anything by writing’ C.S. Lewis
At Zetland we want our children to enjoy writing and develop into confident, technical and articulate writers throughout their journey at our school. We recognise that children’s progression and ability in writing has such a great impact not only a child’s progress in writing itself but also in many other areas of the curriculum as well. We aim to equip our children with the necessary skills, flare and enthusiasm to be the successful writers of the future.
