Vocabulary development

Vocabulary is infused throughout the whole of our curriculum leading to pupils' greater understanding of the world around them. We have a strong aspiration to close the vocabulary gap, often seen in the learners with a range of needs so that these children can have greater success as adults and therefore greater mental health.
We deliberately teach phonics, spelling, sight vocabulary, academic and subject specific vocabulary, as well as the figurative language that makes English such a challenge to learn! This is planned into our curriculum and part of our pedagogical approaches through red and orange words, RWI, Reading Fluency, LiLAC and Knowledge Organisers.
