Intent: What we want to achieve through English teaching
At Laceyfields, we want our children to have a love for reading as well as writing and to enjoy talking about their learning. We will use a range of quality texts that will ignite the children’s curiosity, capture their imaginations and broaden their vocabulary to deepen their understanding of the world. Our children will be able to elaborate upon a range of topics and ideas, speaking confidently with and in front of others. Our children will write to inform and to entertain using a range of grammar devices. Their writing will speak to their audience and they will feel proud of what they have written.
Implementation – How we do it here
We teach early reading through daily phonics lessons using Little Wandle phonics system. Children have individual reading books and we use Red Ted to promote regular reading so that our children become fluent readers. Teachers select key stories and texts that match the English theme for each half term and where possible, connect them with the theme taught in the Foundation Subjects. Writing is developed after children have familiarized with the text. They are taught grammar in context so they have a model to work from, examining how the author has used that device. They plan writing using a range of strategies that help them develop and elaborate upon their ideas. New vocabulary is taught regularly using a systematic approach. The older children develop their skills in proof-reading what they have written and revising and editing their work to improve it.
Impact: How we will see effective English teaching
Our children will be ready for the next stage in their education by being able to read fluently for their age and stage. They will have a reading identity that enhances not inhibits the scope of what they read. Children will speak passionately about the books they read and the authors whose work they enjoy reading. They will use an expanded range of vocabulary including technical terms and include this in their writing which will be both coherent and creative.
