English Curriculum

The English curriculum encompasses the teaching of reading and writing in a wide range of contexts. Early reading starts with phonics and develops into independent reading and a love of books. Children develop writing skills in literacy lessons and are taught how to express themselves by writing across a wide range of genres. Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar form an important part of a child's writing skills toolkit!
