It is our aim that by the end of Key Stage 1 all children develop the skills to become competent, independent readers who enjoy reading.

At Yeading Infant and Nursery school we recognise the importance of speaking and listening. It is in listening that we acquire new vocabulary and new ideas that influence our thoughts. It is in speaking that we are able to communicate these ideas to others. Without this process we would not have the words or ideas that help us to write and understand written words. Speaking and listening activities give children the foundation for reading and writing. Put simply we believe that if you can’t talk, you can’t read, and you can’t write.

At Yeading Infant and Nursery School we encourage children to enjoy writing and mark making from an early age.  It is our aim for all children to attain the required skills to become independent writers by the end of KS1. The curriculum is delivered through class based lessons, as well as school trips, workshops, visiting speakers and through our forest school. Through scaffolding the writing experience, staff at Yeading Infant and Nursery School work hard to enable each and every child to reach their full potential in writing.
