English

English consists of reading (word reading and comprehension), writing (spelling and handwriting and composition), grammar and punctuation and speaking and listening. In Early Years and Key Stage 1, phonics is also taught on a daily basis.

Phonics is taught in small groups across Early Years and KS1 in a lively fun, engaging and challenging way using the Read, Write Inc approach. The focus is on hearing sounds, blending and segmenting sounds to aid reading and writing. This synthetic phonics approach is supported by the Read, Write Inc approach and is planned to meet the needs and abilities of all pupils.

Spelling is linked to phonics and pupils are encouraged to ‘have a go’ at tricky and more challenging words.  When the pupils have mastered phonics, they move on to their age related Spelling Programme which focuses on prefixes, suffixes and common letter strings. Homework tasks include spelling activities.

Pupils have guided and independent reading sessions regularly each week. They are encourages to read a variety of texts and a large selection is available to them in class and in the school library.

Writing opportunities are part of daily lessons and pupils are encouraged to write for pleasure and for purpose. Expectations are, that all pupils use a range of conventions in grammar to help convey meaning in their work.

English lessons are generally taught on a daily basis, but skills are also threaded through other subjects to encourage consolidation and transferring of skills.
