“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
At Spring Brook Lower, we believe in the teaching of Communication (Speaking & Listening), Reading and Writing Skills as the foundation for successful learning.
It is our aim across the Primary phase to develop these skills in all of our children.
Communication (Speaking & Listening) – We provide English lessons that can be adapted to suit all learners through a variety of approaches so that they can become confident communicators.
Reading – We stimulate a love for reading by choosing accessible and engaging stories or texts, which inspire our learners to become passionate readers.
Writing – We provide all learners with a range of literacy skills for life, to support them now, and in the future.
