Is at the heart of our curriculum. We encourage children to develop a positive attitude towards literature of all kinds. Children learn the knowledge and skills to become confident readers, so that they can read for both pleasure and information.
Full details of our reading curriculum can be found under the Phonics & Reading page.
The use of engaging, relevant and high quality texts is central to our writing curriculum. These often act as stimuli for children to develop and explore their writing skills. Teacher-led activities show children how to plan, draft, rehearse and edit texts, preparing them to write ambitiously. Children learn how to debate and present, to reason and justify their answers. Spelling and grammar is integrated into our English curriculum and is taught discretely and in context.
Full details of our curriculum can be found in our Intent document below and in the Curriculum Statement.
