English Statement of Intent

The overarching aim for English in the National Curriculum is to promote high standards of language and literacy by equipping pupils with a strong command of the spoken and written word, and to develop their love of literature through widespread reading for enjoyment. The National Curriculum for English aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • read easily, fluently and with good understanding
  • develop the habit of reading widely and often, for both pleasure and information
  • acquire a wide vocabulary, an understanding of grammar and knowledge of linguistic conventions for reading, writing and spoken language
  • appreciate our rich and varied literary heritage
  • write clearly, accurately and coherently, adapting their language and style in and for a range of contexts, purposes and audiences
  • use discussion in order to learn; they should be able to elaborate and explain clearly their understanding and ideas
  • are competent in the arts of speaking and listening, making formal presentations, demonstrating to others and participating in debate.

At St Peter’s our high-quality English curriculum not only strives to meet these aims but also embeds these across the wider curriculum, making their learning more purposeful and meaningful. Continual half termly writing, reading and phonics assessments are used to gauge children’s attainment and implement targeted interventions where needed. We aim to ensure that all children are equipped with the skills and knowledge they needed to develop and flourish.

 
 
Recommended Reads
 
In school we aim for the children to read daily in EYFS/KS1 and regularly in KS2. All children are encouraged to read every night at home, even if it is just for ten minutes to accelerate their development in reading and writing. We want to develop the habit of reading widely and often both for pleasure and information. As well as having access to a wide range of books from our reading scheme and the school library, children are encouraged to read lots of other books at home too. Below you will find links to recommended reading books for every age group.
