Why we teach Literacy

 

The teaching of reading and writing is important as it opens up a new world for your children to discover. Whether your children aspire to be authors or poets our Literacy lessons will fully support your child during their journey through Hope School. Promoting a love of reading will broaden your child’s imagination and help them think of creative ways to solve problems in their everyday life.

 

Aims
