Hello Twitter!

English

Developing a good use of English is a fundamental part of primary learning. By providing a language rich environment, children are encouraged to develop good communication skills and express their ideas both orally and in written form. Reading is given a high priority, not just as a vital skill to be acquired but as a pleasurable activity to be valued for its own sake. In school children begin sharing picture books and then progress onto the Oxford Reading Tree. Real books are banded according to level of difficulty and once children have progressed through these they become free readers.

Parents are encouraged to share reading books with their children from the earliest stages. Phonic skills are taught from Nursery using Jolly Phonics and are developed throughout Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 with a range of games and activities from Letters and Sounds. Children throughout the school participate in an extended writing lesson every week where they apply their improved use of vocabulary, grammar, punctuation and their skills in planning and composition; they also improve work through a process of editing and redrafting. Throughout Key Stages 1 and 2 children work on developing a joined and legible handwriting style.
