Happy Children Love Learning

Loving Learning


At Pocklington Infants we want to inspire pupils with a love for learning.  We do this through our curriculum which is built around a love of books.  Each 1/2 term pupils are hooked into their learning through books written by our spotlight authors.  In 2020-21 our spotlight authors will include: Pat Hutchins, Jill Murphy, Mick Inkpen, Marcus Pfister, Julia Donaldson, Jane Hissey, Giles Andreae, Raymond Briggs, Simon James, Moira Butterfield, Rachel Bright, Hilary Robinson, Roald Dahl, Maria Hedderwick to name a few.

Books by these authors, plus appropriate non fiction and multimedia texts provide the focus through which we explore our curriculum topics.
