English at Bowker Vale

We use the National Curriculum objectives as the basis of our English curriculum at Bowker Vale.  Our English lessons are based upon 'quality texts', which are a range of books and other media carefully selected to inspire our children.  

During English lessons, skills relating to reading, writing and spoken language are taught and applied. Grammar is taught in context throughout English lessons. In addition to this, children take part in a daily  reading session. Spelling, phonics and handwriting are taught explicitly in short sessions, as well as being referred to throughout the curriculum.
