This section of the Teaching and Learning area of the website focuses upon English. On this page you will find information regarding elements of the English curriculum, details about reading scheme - Accelerated Reader, spelling lists and other helpful information.
The teaching of English in school obviously focuses on Reading and Writing, but within that are also elements such as spelling, punctuation and grammar (SPaG) and handwriting. We believe very passionately that children get the best possible start with these areas, as reading and writing are the tools required to unlock the wider curriculum. All children in school are provided with a Reading Record and it is part of our Home/School agreement that parents and carers are reading at home with children on a regular basis.
Please take some time to familiarise yourself with the English portion of our website. We aim to update this page regularly with relevant news and information about how English is progressing within our school.
A huge thank you to all those parents who attended the Accelerated Reader Parent Meeting last Wednesday.
Following on from the meeting, we are attaching the
PowerPoint, which we are sure you will find useful.
