English includes reading, writing, phonics, handwriting, spelling, punctuation and grammar.
We use the Jane Considine 'The Write Stuff' resources to teach our main English lessons supplemented with Talk4Writing techniques and the Alan Peat sentence progression. Children begin their phonics and reading journey in EYFS through the Sounds Write program. As well as teacher-led lessons, we use Accelerated Reader as a fun and challenging way to improve reading comprehension and reading engagement.
