Dame Ellen Pinsent School


At Dame Ellen our aim is to develop pupils' ability to listen, speak, read and write. The outcomes of this will enable pupils to express ideas, views and feelings more effectively.

At Dame Ellen we creatively provide learning opportunities using a thematic and multisensory approach. We choose a book to focus on and hook the children into it.

We develop a love of reading and writing across classes through the magic of story books.  A love and enjoyment of reading and learning through books shines across classes.

We use the Read Write Inc programme to teach reading. All children take a reading book home and this is either linked to the level of reading book that the children read in class, or it is a high quality picture book to share with an adult for our children that are still developing the early reading skills.
