Through our English curriculum, our intent is to create a positive reading, writing and speaking and listening culture in school, so our pupils go from strength to strength, building on a range of skills, as they work through each journey of the writing process. Throughout this journey, we ensure the children of All Saints’ are immersed in a range of genres, writing for an array of purposes and audiences in order to unlock limitless opportunities for them.
We aim for all children at All Saints' Primary School to leave Year 6 with the ability to:
- Embrace reading, demonstrating their love of reading and a desire to read for enjoyment
- Write and read with confidence, fluency and understanding, using a range of independent strategies
- Write in a variety of styles (text types) with intended impact using various writing skills/tools
- Carefully select vocabulary with attention to the desired effect on the readers’ thoughts and feelings and articulate their responses in any discussion
We adapt learning in response to diverse learning needs and overcoming potential barriers making learning accessible for all no matter what the children’s starting point is, so they reach their potential and flourish. We want all of our children to be capable readers, writers, spellers and speakers, who can transfer their English skills to other curriculum areas and who are prepared for the next phases in their education. By giving children the context to learning, they will understand the value of English to them now and in their futures.
