At Trewirgie Junior School we believe that literacy is a fundamental life skill.
“Acquiring literacy is an empowering process, enabling millions to enjoy access to knowledge and information which broadens horizons, increases opportunities and creates alternatives for building a better life.” Kofi Annan (seventh Secretary-General of the United Nations).
Teaching and Learning
All children at Trewirgie Junior School are entitled to a broad and diverse learning experience. For us literacy is more than being able to read and write. It is about having the cultural literacy, fluency and enjoyment of words that allows them to operate at a high level and engage fully in the world around them.
At Trewirgie Junior school we have an exciting and innovative curriculum which places English at the very heart. Reading and writing are taught on a daily basis across the school. These skills are then applied through their termly project.
This approach to learning ensures that children are motivated to use and apply their reading and writing skills for a real purpose. Our approach ensures that children are exposed to a wide range of rich vocabulary, develop a love of reading and writing and have the knowledge and skills to be successful in life.
