The Wilson Primary School


To learn to read is to light a fire; every syllable that is spelled out is a spark.

Victor Hugo, Les Miserables
You should write because you love the shape of stories and sentences and the creation of different words on a page. Writing comes from reading, and reading is the finest teacher of how to write                                                    (Annie Proulx)

English is a vital way of communicating in school, in public life and internationally. Literature in English is rich and influential, reflecting the experience of people from many countries and times. Within our school we encourage children and staff to develop their love of reading and writing. We believe that by interweaving reading and writing skills and making links explicit, we will nurture children’s English abilities to their best potential.
