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.
