Connectedness of Reading and Writing across the Curriculum


Reading and writing experiences for our children are implemented throughout the whole of our curriculum. Within English and Whole Class Reading, children are exposed to key texts across a variety of genres and from a variety of high-quality authors. This is to allow our children to become writers through the eyes of a reader. The texts we explore stimulate and inspire all we do in English and Whole Class Reading: reading, group work, discussions, debates, role-play etc.


However, reading and writing is not limited to English and Reading sessions, it is promoted and integrated throughout the whole of our curriculum. Through internet research skills during Computing, Geography or History, key texts explicitly linked to our History, Geography or Science units, mastery-style questioning in Mathematics, secondary sources for historical enquiry, research when thinking scientifically, theological underpinning during RE, philosophical enquires and to support our whole-school performances (which are always the pinnacle of the school year for us!). These are simply just a few of the reading and writing opportunities life at St. Augustine’s provides!
