From Nursery to Year 6 children follow a programme that is suited to their age, aptitude and ability. From Year 1 the school implements the National Literacy Strategy and children are given a firm grounding in speaking and listening, reading and comprehension, handwriting, spelling, grammar, creative writing, poetry appreciation and dictionary skills.
