English Curriculum

Please see above the English Curriculum evening presentation.

The overarching aim for English in the national curriculum is to promote high standards of language and literacy by equipping pupils with a strong command of the spoken and written word, and to develop their love of literature through widespread reading for enjoyment.

Please find a phonics attachment from our recent workshop for parents of Early Years and Year 1, thank you to all the parents that attended but if you were unable to make it due to work commitments then please see the fact sheet attached below.  Phonics fact sheet
