We pride ourselves on planning and delivering a varied, exciting and appropriately challenging English curriculum.
The curriculum includes phonics, reading, writing, SPaG (spelling, punctuation and grammar) and vocabulary. Within their lessons, children have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of activities designed to engage, develop and inspire them in their learning journey.
English is embedded and developed across the whole school day; after all, children need to draw upon their English skills to complete tasks such as interpreting problems in maths, conduct scientific research and effectively communicate during group work or during social time.
We believe that reading is the basis on which all other learning can be built. We ensure that children have access to high-quality texts within lessons, for their independent reading and within the library.
