English – Our intent, aims and concepts

Aim

Our English curriculum is the vehicle by which we inspire children to be curious, creative and independent learners. Children are immersed in high quality literature and daily opportunities to engage confidently in peer to peer discussion. By valuing and cherishing high quality literature across our schools and across our curriculum, our children will shape, draft and craft their writing, resulting in beautiful work of which they are justifiably proud. Oracy is given priority within the classroom, as a means of developing metacognition, in order that children develop a reflective, critical approach to both reading and writing. We expect that all children are supported to develop ideas and opinions around literature and are able to articulate themselves with confidence.

We intend that the study of English will enable our children to:

• Read easily, fluently and with good understanding

• Develop the habit of reading widely and often, for both pleasure and information

•  Acquire a wide vocabulary

• Develop an understanding of grammar and knowledge of linguistic conventions for reading, writing and spoken language

• Write clearly, accurately and coherently, adapting their language and style in and for a range of contexts, purposes and audiences

• Use discussion in order to learn; they should be able to elaborate and explain clearly their understanding and ideas

• Become competent in the arts of speaking and listening, making formal presentations, demonstrating to others and participating in debate
