Reading

Here you will find out how the teaching and learning of reading works at our school. As well as reading their reading book every night and working with adults in the classroom, children can complete Bug Club reading activities on www.activelearnprimary.co.uk.

 
Writing

Here you will find each English unit that your child will cover over the course of this academic year. Once a term your child will study a poetry unit, a fiction unit and a non-fiction unit. Within each unit we will look at transcription, composition and SPaG skills required for that genre of writing. Many of our English units are taught using Talk for Writing so children will begin each unit by learning a text, then explore the text type in more depth, and finally invent their own versions of the text type using all the writer's tricks they have studied.

 
Grammar

Coverage of SPaG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) mainly occurs through the teaching of our English units. Children may also complete grammar and spelling activities on www.activelearnprimary.co.uk, where each child has their own account.
