Our English lessons develop pupils’ spoken language, reading, writing and vocabulary. English is taught as a stand alone subject through Reading, Writing and Phonics/Spelling and in a cross-curricular way, linking up with other areas of the curriculum. We teach our pupils to speak clearly, to convey their ideas fluently and confidently and to ask questions. Their vocabulary is developed systematically.
Follow the additional tabs on Reading/Phonics and Writing/Spelling to find out more about how we teach English in our school.
To support your child at home please ensure you are accessing our online platform Spelling Shed and accessing video links in the phonics section of the website. Please also read with your child at home as often as you can as this will support and enhance their learning in school.
