At St. Ambrose, we aim to deliver a high-quality English curriculum that gives children the best possible opportunities to become confident, literate, successful members of society with a deep love and understanding of the English language and literature. We believe the development of Literacy skills is central to improving a child’s life chances.
As we use a Quality Text-based approach, rich texts are at the heart of our teaching, and a love for reading is promoted throughout the school. This is because we believe that reading is the inhale and writing is the exhale. Carefully planned creative writing weeks provide memorable experiences for all children, bringing topics to life through real-life contexts.
