English at Springfield

Reading & Writing

At Springfield, pupils enjoy showcasing their writing in the school corridors for all to see. As we walk down our writing corridor it is lovely to see the range of writing from across the year groups.


Within each classroom we have a reading area where pupils can choose books that they wish to read and in some classes, get comfy amongst the cushions reading their favourite book!
