English Curriculum Intent

To equip every child with sufficient oracy skills in order to communicate effectively when creating friendships, building teams and expressing their own opinions in their everyday life. To inspire a love of reading and writing and an understanding of language through carefully chosen texts in order to develop fluent readers and creative writers.

“Pupils love to read.  This is typified by the example of a Year 6 pupil who explained how the class was inspired by a book suggested by the teacher.”  Ofsted 2018

Introduction to English

Introduction to English

Our English lessons have a heavy focus on children’s spoken language and develop their reading, writing, spelling, and vocabulary. English is taught from the National Curriculum and we follow a thematic approach to create a bespoke programme for our children. Key knowledge and skills are taught across all lessons.  Children develop a love of reading and writing and an understanding of language through carefully chosen texts, in order to develop fluent readers and creative writers.
