Readers are taken on a journey to knowledge and imagination; writers take readers on that journey
Mrs Collins and Miss Fishwick are the subject leaders for English at our school. We know just how important and how huge the English curriculum is and so split the role into Early Years and Key Stage 1 with Miss Fishwick and Key Stage 2 with Mrs Collins. English - reading, writing, phonics, spelling and grammar - underpins all other subjects and runs alongside all learning in school. We have a dedicated 30 minutes at the start of every day for reading in every class. We all have our daily hour-long lesson and outside that lesson we have handwriting and spelling practice. We also have story time in every class throughout the week, where we read our class novel.
But our passion for English does not stop there. We have author visits, celebrate World Book Day, have theatre visits in school, go the theatre and lots more.
