Briar Hill Infant School
Miss Clark is our English Leader
We value the importance of speaking and listening and provide many opportunities for children to think, discuss, plan, learn and reflect in an imaginative and collaborative way. We use Letters and Sounds, Jolly Phonics and Read Write Inc. We encourage and develop a love of reading for purpose and pleasure. We teach pre-cursive and cursive handwriting through the 'Letterjoin' scheme from Reception to Year 2. We promote a topic/book based approach to learning both within English and all other subjects as a way to 'hook' our children into learning through an exciting story!
Developing these essential skills enables our children to become confident speakers, listeners, readers and writers immersed in purposeful learning.
