READ as a Writer, WRITE as a Reader
‘READ as a Writer, WRITE as a Reader’ is our whole school quality text-based approach to English lessons.
The use of high-quality books within the reading curriculum is at the heart of Heathrow Primary’s successful approach in engaging and supporting children to be motivated and independent readers. If the children enjoy reading, they read more frequently and become better readers.
We have designed an English curriculum that is centred around classic, modern and high-quality picture books, as well as new and upcoming authors and texts. We are continually adding to our rich selection of texts so that children are immersed in exploring the way authors use language, to develop the writer within themselves. There is a wealth of research to say that one of the most effective ways to becoming a powerful writer is to be an avid reader; to unpick language from books and use this as a model for quality writing.
