English

Our English curriculum is based around six whole-school topics, within which we study a range of texts and genres of writing.  Where possible, these are linked to History and Geography topics so that children can become fully immersed in a cross-curricular topic.
Here are our planned topics for English this year:

Term 1: Wonderful World
Term 2: Time Travellers
Term 3: United Kingdom
Term 4: Imagine…
Term 5: Explorers
Term 6: The Poet Tree

Within a topic, each year group focuses their learning around a text; these are carefully chosen to ensure that our pupils are exposed to literature from a wide range of genres, authors, cultures and styles.  We make use of “Talk for Writing” techniques to engage our children and help them to internalise texts, which has had a really positive impact on their writing.
