English Curriculum

In English we value the role of high quality, engaging texts to inspire and motivate our children.  We have undertaken work with the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education (CLPE) on their Power of Reading Project.  This underpins our English curriculum.  The children explore texts, explore new writing skills, develop creativity before producing ‘mini’ and ‘substantial’ writes over the course of each half term.. Typically these alternate weekly, with mini writes forming interim stepping stones towards the substantial writes.  These become the assessed pieces.
