At Balksbury Federation we strive to make our approach to English engaging and purposeful and use enriched texts, or hooks to inspire children.  In writing, we want our children to take ownership over the vocabulary they use so that they can express themselves with confidence. Reading is highly valued and each day children have a reading session where key skills are taught.  In Early Years, our children enjoy learning phonics each day and are presented with many writing and reading opportunities linked into the children’s play both indoors and outdoors.
