Subject Leader: Mr Dewar-Willox
We want our children to develop a love of English and the opportunities that our language provides. Children will be immersed in text and language rich environments and develop a love of story, poetry and information. They will see themselves as writers and experiment with, and explore language within their own work whilst developing a secure understanding of the technical components of spelling, handwriting, punctuation and grammar.
Through a love of language, children will engage in drama, performance, poetry recitals and role-play. They will develop and use an increasing range of adventurous vocabulary to articulate their view points and read a range of texts which enhance their reading strategies and comprehension skills.
