"The more you read, the more you know. The more you know, the more places you will go..." Dr Seuss


At Holme Slack, we believe that a quality English curriculum should develop children’s love of reading, writing and discussion. We intend to inspire an appreciation of our rich and varied literary heritage and for all of our children to read fluently and develop a habit of reading widely and often. We aim to expose our children to a wide range of vocabulary so that they are able to decipher new words and then use them in their writing and when speaking formally and informally. We strive to teach the children how important their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills will be in the real world and by giving this context to their learning, the children understand the value of English to them now and in their futures.  We believe that a secure basis in literacy skills is crucial to a high quality education which will give our children the tools they need to participate fully as a member of society.
