Book Spine

Crowcroft Park Book Spine

At Crowcroft Park, a key focus of learning is on developing language and communication. Effective spoken and written communication are essential for future success in education and life itself. We do many different things to develop children’s receptive and expressive language, as well as their reading and writing skills; most of our approaches are directly linked to high-quality texts. Beautiful, exciting, ‘real’ books – both classic and modern – inspire a love of reading and provide a model of Standard English.

We are in the process of developing a ‘book spine’; a list of all the books that our children will be formally introduced to through their language and literacy lessons.
