St. Margaret’s C of E Junior School


Nurturing a love of language underpins our approach to English. In line with the 2014 Curriculum, the children at St. Margaret’s are taught Spoken Language; Reading (both word recognition and comprehension); Writing (both transcription and composition); Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar. These four aspects of the subject are accessed during discreet English lessons, including Guided Reading, as well as being part of a cross curricular approach which are therefore present in all other subject areas.

Keep reading in lockdown!         

Reading is an essential skill that underpins all of the learning we do and it is vital that children keep reading at home during lockdown. As we are unable to give out school reading books at the moment, we have found some online libraries that have a good selection of books for your child to read.


Additionally, some of the local libraries are doing a 'click and collect' service. Please use this weblink to borrow or sign up for a library card if you don’t already have one.

Tackling Life's Big Challenges Through Reading

We hope that you find some of these resources of use and enjoy time spent reading with your child.
