The English and languages curriculum is a core skill for all the children to achieve. We need the children to be confident communicators and readers as this unlocks so many other aspects of the curriculum and the further world. We aim for our children to be fluent readings who can comprehend and read with automaticity across a range of subjects and genres and in turn communicate effective through both spoken and written word.
As such, English is not only taught discretely but is woven throughout all the curriculum areas. Children will be exposed to print and texts throughout all subjects and also use their communication skills to present and extend their learning.
