Ask, Seek, Knock. Matthew 7:7
Our vision for English is for children…
Positive attitudes ensure that the children grow in confidence and self-esteem and are highly motivated towards their own personal achievements in all aspects of English. Six hours a week are dedicated to teaching English, including two hours for reading and ample time for extended writing opportunities. Where possible the English topics are linked to topics being covered in other subjects to give more relevance. Each child has targets for writing to ensure rapid progress.
Reading is taught using the Reciprocal Reading approach, where children learn to summarise, question, predict and clarify.
