We are the first Suffolk school to be accredited as a 'Storytelling School'.
What is Storytelling?
Why complete Storytelling?
Whilst data for the school remains high, we felt that storytelling was a method to develop other skills of deepening children's learning. This is an ongoing approach that will allow children to build their vocabulary, sentence structure and plot patterns, and has a cumulative effect that releases linguistic power.
We have experienced a continued and sustained rise in attainment in children’s writing: 93% achieved expected levels and 40% above expected levels at the end of KS1 in 2015, compared to 83% at expected and 33% above expected in 2014. This has continued into 2016, with all measures continuing above the national for the expected standard.
