“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”                      Dr. Seuss, I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!
At Lindow CP School we believe in the importance of embedding the core skills of reading and writing to support the children's learning across the curriculum.

All classes take a thematic approach to teaching reading and writing which provides children with opportunities to write for a purpose, on a topic they are fully engaged with. 

We are passionate about promoting reading for pleasure and much of our writing is inspired by accessing  a wide range of children's literature.

'Booktropolis' was redesigned and launched by our children and provides an inspirational learning area, where we are particularly proud of our investment in high quality children's literature.

Alongside 'Booktropolis' we introduced all children in KS2 to the  Accelerated Reading programme, details of which can be found here. If you would like to learn more please visit this web site.

Throughout the year English is celebrated across the school with visits from authors and poets; World Book Day; Eisteddfod and World Poetry Day.

The English Curriculum


World Book Day celebrations...Drop Everything And Read!

As part of our celebrations in 2018, the whole school took part in compiling a book "The Flight". From an initial scene setting, each class added a page to the story and illustrated it. Please admire our work here...
