Reading and Writing

Reading and writing are key skills that underpin all areas of our curriculum. Please read the attached for more details:

Reading at Heathbrook Primary School
At Heathbrook, we use Letters and Sounds to help us to teach phonics in conjunction with Thrass and Jolly Phonics.

Writing at Heathbrook Primary School

Reading and writing is underpinned by a whole school commitment to oracy. We have worked closely with the Communication Trust to further enhance staff skills and communication-friendly learning environments. To further support children with speech and language difficulties we buy in a Speech and Language Therapist.
