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.
