Caldmore Primary Academy follows the Year group programmes of study as identified in the National Curriculum for Literacy. Long term plans are created by using the themes of narrative, non-fiction and poetry. These themes are then taught in a given number of units spread progressively across the year. Literacy is a core subject in the National Curriculum, therefore the teaching and learning of Literacy skills is given high priority throughout school.

  • By the end of Year 6 we aim for all of our pupils to be able to:
  • use a wide vocabulary with a good understanding of grammar;
  • use discussion in order to learn, explaining clearly their understanding and ideas;
  • participate in conversations, making appropriate contributions;
  • make formal presentations and participate in debate;
  • create, share and evaluate ideas and understanding through drama;
  • read easily and fluently, showing good understanding, for purpose, pleasure and information across the curriculum;
  • write clearly, accurately and coherently, adapting their language and style in and for a range of contexts, purposes and audiences;
  • spell accurately;
  • appreciate our rich and varied literary heritage;
  • develop a clear and fluent joined handwriting style.
