Communication, Language and Literacy
Welcome to the Communication, Language and Literacy page. We work together to ensure that the children at Nevill Road Junior School can access a broad, balanced and creative curriculum through the subject areas of Reading, Writing and Modern Foreign Languages. On this page you will find information about how we teach reading and writing at Nevill Road Juniors as well as information about spelling, punctuation and grammar. All children at the Junior School learn to speak, read and write French from Year 3 through to Year 6. This enables pupils to have a solid understanding of key skills in a language, before they go to High School.
Spelling ASPIRE day
On the last day before the holidays, the children enjoyed taking part in a day of spelling activities which ended in our first Nevill Road Spelling Bee. Well done to Liam. Alexander, James and Mariam who were the year group winners.
Love for Reading
At Nevill Road Juniors we encourage children to read when ever possible and have spent this year restocking and organising our school library. Our Year 5 and 6 librarians have done a fantastic job of keeping the area well looked after as well as listening to other chidlren read from across the school. Mrs Hancock's lunchtime reading club has also been extremely popular. Children have visited Stockport's Plaza to meet famous authors and hear extracts from their latest books. This has included Lauren Childs and Francesca Simon. As part of World Book Week we invited family members to share books with the children. The Friends of Nevill Road also set up a reading challenge for all children to take part in. During World Book Day, the children and staff dressed up as their favourite book characters and took part in a variety of reading activities throughout the day.
