Our English lessons are all 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.
