At Talbot, we follow the Literary Curriculum, which is a complete, book-based approach to teaching English.

The Teach Through a Text approach ensures a consistent, cohesive pedagogy is used across the school.

Developed by The Literacy Tree, a group of English specialists who have all been teachers, school leaders and moderators, the Literary Curriculum immerses children in a literary world, creating strong levels of engagement to provide meaningful and authentic contexts for learning.

Children become critical readers and acquire an authorial style as they encounter a wide-range of significant authors and a variety of fiction, non-fiction and poetry.
