At Ivy Bank we embrace creativity and have successfully implemented a quality text-based curriculum, which we believe inspires our children to become magical writers.
Ivy Bank encourages the children to have a sense of pride in the presentation of their work across the curriculum. Correct letter formation and handwriting joins are taught using the Penpals scheme, which has been endorsed by the National Handwriting Association. Our school handwriting style encourages breaks in joining, therefore we don’t join ‘g,j,y, x and z’.
Use the active-learn website to access grammar and punctuation actvities set for your child by their teacher. The teacher receives information about your child's performance in the activities. The children earn tokens to spend on the fun games and activities on the website.
