Discovering Together

English

Intent

Our English Curriculum is built on our vision of ‘Motivate, Educate, Nurture’ and reflects the needs of our community. It is our passion to make English irresistible, creating lifelong readers and writers who are able to communicate effectively through spoken and written language.

It is our aim through English that all pupils at Stanton St Quintin Primary School will be

  • provided with opportunities that enable them to grow and develop as fluent writers and readers, building on their prior English learning

  • supported to develop their English knowledge and skills as they make their journey through their primary school education, ensuring that their learning is relevant to all areas of their life

  • curious, through use of varied stimulus, including texts, paintings, objects, videos and music.

  • encouraged to broaden their use of vocabulary

  • able to demonstrate their new knowledge and deeper understanding through independent writing with purpose

Reading plays a central part in English. Through the use of high quality texts including fiction, non-fiction and poetry we aim to challenge the pupils, building on vocabulary so that it can be used in all areas of their learning.
