We follow the National Curriculum for English.
Teachers plan how children will best learn the knowledge and skills involved in English. This leads to some stand-alone units of work as well as to some lessons that link to other subjects, such as History and RE. Spelling and grammar are taught discretely as well as the skills embedded in lessons and unit plans.
Many of our units focus on an age-appropriate book, sometimes picture books and sometimes longer novels. These provide a jumping-off point for children to write their own compositions as well as appreciating the writer’s craft.
