English is taught discretely in each year group. We follow the Read Write Inc programme for phonics in EYFS and KS1 to ensure consistency with phonics teaching and learning. We follow the Talk for Writing approach which incorporates a reading into writing learning journey. English is a core subject and is at the heart of our curriculum. In addition to this, English is taught throughout the curriculum, linking to the topics and individual projects. Each project covers a range of reading and writing genres and, where appropriate, links to other areas of the curriculum.
Spoken language is a vital taught skill and is modelled and promoted throughout the curriculum and across all subjects.
Spelling, vocabulary, grammar and punctuation are taught discretely and promoted throughout all writing opportunities, with each year group following National Curriculum objectives.
