During English lessons we deliver a creative, enjoyable, engaging and interactive approach to learning. Children learn better when they are excited and engaged. We investigate our units which range from poetry, plays, non fiction and fiction and we follow the format of 'engage, explore and create.'
EYFS/Key Stage 1
In English we will be focusing on phonic work following our 'Read, Write, Inc scheme'. Children will also have a weekly 'Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar' lesson. Every Friday we use 'The Power of reading' project and study books. Our follow up to the book involves us writing in different genres and developing our early comprehension skills. Our genre focus' for this term is writing recounts and letter writing.
