Learn and Grow


Hello and welcome to the English curriculum page for Summerfields Primary Academy.


At Summerfields Primary Academy, we have a clear and ambitious vision for the literacy curriculum, which enables all our children to ‘learn and grow’ - as identified in our school’s mission statement. We are passionate about ensuring all children become confident and enthusiastic readers and writers. We provide a happy and secure environment where our children - regardless of their background, needs and abilities - enjoy their literacy learning.


On this page you will find information about our curriculum offer, our policies, useful resources that can be used to support your child's progress and links to embed learning.

Book fair raffle

A huge well done to Molly in F2 and Joshua in year 3 for winning the book fair raffle this week. They have been given a reading book to enjoy at home. 



Our school library is open to both parents and pupils every Tuesday after school 3:00 - 3:30pm. Come along a choose a book or join in with one of our activities. We also now have a lending library for parents so pop along and see if there is anything you would like to read.

Can't make Tuesday? Then don't worry the library is open to all pupils every Wednesday 12:30 - 1pm.


If you have any questions please free to speak to our Year 6 librarians (Amelia and Amarah) or Mrs. Wakefield.

Reading is a vital skill that all children need to learn. It is about making sense of the written word around them, enjoying books, and being able to use books to find information.

At school children have the opportunity to read a wide range of quality books, both fiction and non-fiction. 

When children are first beginning to learn to read, they will bring home their  'reading book' to practise what they have learnt in school. We also encourage children to take home books that interest them, to share with their parents and friends. 

Teach a child to read and keep that child reading and you'll change everything. And I mean everything.

At Summerfields we use the Read, Write Inc (RWI) programme to get children off to a flying start with their literacy.  RWI is a method of learning centred around letter sounds and phonics and we use it to help children in their reading and writing.
