Reading and Writing

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

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

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.
