At Balfour, we have carefully crafted our Literacy curriculum to ensure it is engaging and progressive. Literacy is at the heart of all learning and we want to enthuse our children with a love of Reading and Writing. 

We have broken Literacy down into five key areas - Handwriting, Phonics, Reading, Spelling and Writing. Wherever possible, we look for connections between both these areas and other subjects in order to embed new learning and revisit secured skills across a range of activities. Topic links engage children and provide purpose for their Literacy learning, whilst allowing them to apply their knowledge and skills across multiple lessons and tasks.
