Curriculum Intent

It is our intent at Coxhoe Primary School to provide all of our children with a high-quality education in English, which develops their love of reading, writing and discussion. It is our intention to ensure that by the end of their primary education, children have the required knowledge and skills that allow them to speak, read and write fluently so that they can communicate their ideas and emotions to others effectively. We believe that this will give our children the tools they need to succeed in life.

Book Swap

On Thursday 17th October we had this school year's first whole school book swap and it was a fabulous success! Many children donated books which they had read and picked up new ones - sparking their interest and imagination. What a great way to ensure that our children have new books to read and enjoy without having to spend any money. A big THANK YOU to all the children who donated their books so that they can be enjoyed again. Watch this space for photographs of our next book swap in November.

Adam Bushnell 

Adam Bushnell (a local author and storyteller) visited our school on Monday 16th and Tuesday 17th September. Adam worked with all of the children in our school from Reception to Year 6 sharing his stories in order to inspire them to write using our new topics for the Autumn Term.
In Reception and Year 1, the children met Adam's pet tortoise and they really enjoyed making animal noises and stories together. In Year 2, the children learnt all about local wildlife and nature. Whilst in Year 3 and 4 the story writing was based around the Anglo-Saxons and the character of Beowulf and Year 5 and 6 wrote spooky stories based on North American tales. We all had great fun and enjoyed spending times writing or telling stories!
