English - Led by Mr Leigh
All of our English is taught through rich high quality texts, which where possible link in with the children's topics.
Our philosophy behind our approach is to use the same rich text with the children and though this bring in a range of writing genres. For example, the children may write a character description one week, then next they would be exploring a newspaper article based on the stories events, followed up by a monologue in the third week considering characters thoughts, feelings and emotions.
We believe that in the 21st Century rich texts come in a variety of formats from classic texts through to video clips, animated stories, musical stimulus but to name a few!
