At Mayhill we intend for all children experience reading for pleasure and develop positive attitudes to reading. Children are taught the NC content through stimulating lessons that are well pitched and carefully sequenced. All children make good or better progress in reading, writing, speaking and listening during their time at Mayhill Junior School.Teaching and learning is adapted to the needs of the children, so it builds on their prior knowledge and interests where possible.

All children experience enjoyment and success with their writing through purposeful Learning Journeys.  Children are empowered to become more independent learners. Teachers model excellence, enjoyment and strong subject knowledge to children.

Our children move onto Year 7 with a secure grasp of the reading and writing skills that they need to succeed.
