English in Lower School

In English I will learn to develop a love of language and will learn new vocabulary from my reading and in my topic work.  I will start to use these confidently and accurately when speaking and writing.  Speaking and listening underpins both my reading and writing, and I will have the opportunity to prepare, gather ideas and make my thinking clear orally before I write.

My love of language and books will grow through the rich and varied texts shared with me by my teachers.  I will develop my understanding of stories, poems and non-fictions texts and be able to speak about and discuss them coherently.   These texts will influence and positively impact my writing.  I will be able to organise and communicate my ideas showing awareness of audience, purpose and contexts.  My handwriting will be correctly formed and I will learn to join letters accurately. I will be taught how to use my phonic knowledge to spell new and unfamiliar words, and I will also become competent in spelling the high frequency and tricky words. I will make sure that I include the punctuation that I have been taught in my writing.  I will be proud of the work that I create and complete

My love of language and literature will grow through the rich and varied texts shared with me by my teachers.  I will develop my understanding of stories, poems and non-fictions texts and be able to speak about and discuss them coherently.   These texts will influence and positively impact my writing.  I will be able to organise and communicate my ideas showing awareness of audience, purpose and contexts.  My handwriting will be clear, fluent and legible, and I will remain focused on the elements of spelling, punctuation and grammar that I have been taught.  I will revise and edit my writing and be proud of the work that I create and complete.

Key Skills Progression Plan

As part of our ongoing curriculum development work, our subject leaders are preparing detailed skills development documents for every subject. This term (Autumn 2021), as part of our school development work, the subject leaders are developing and trialling these skills progression documents for the subjects and topics being delivered this term. These will be published soon.

Our curriculum begins in the Early Years Foundation Stage. As part of the process of developing the skills progression documents, we have met as a staff team and carefully considered the prerequisite skills required for our EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) children to be ready to access the National Curriculum at the beginning of Year 1. These prerequisite skills can be found by clicking on the link below.

Lower School Library Visit – Spring 2022

Children in EYFS and Years 1-3 visited the local library where they were read a story and had the opportunity to browse the books and choose ones they liked to read while they were there.
