At Harting Church of England Primary School we believe that high quality texts should sit at the heart of the teaching of reading and writing. We have carefully selected the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education's resource 'The Power of Reading' to promote all children's love of reading and writing.
This approach uses one high-quality text per unit which all writing is based around. This enables children to become fully engaged with the text through a range of opportunities including drama and art, allowing children to be totally immersed in the text. With this secure understanding of the text children are then able to apply their understanding to  their own written work whilst also improving their spelling, punctuation and grammar skills in each lesson. 
This approach has and continues to lead to classes full of engaged, enthusiastic and exited children who cannot wait to read and write!
