This year, Miss Lemin and Mrs Bright (from November 2018) are responsible for English Writing and English Reading. If you have any questions about the subject, ask your child's class teacher or contact us directly and we will endeavour to answer any queries.
What is our Vision?
To inspire children to develop a love for reading, writing and speaking and listening in a way that provides them with lifelong skills to be successful in whatever choices they make.
Here at Eye C of E Primary School, we are dedicated to providing exciting experiences to allow children to develop and achieve in English. We use Pie Corbett's approach of 'Talk for Writing' to drive our teaching of writing and Jane Considine's approach of 'Book Talk' to allow children to progress in their reading skills.
Below is an outline of the skills that are taught in each year group. You will see that these skills are progressive and we ensure that our English curriculum constantly allows children to be building on their prior learning.
The links above give you more information about what 'Talk for Writing' is and why we have chosen to embrace this approach. Through exciting opportunities to talk about a text, children are able to internalise language, text features and grammatical features that can then be used in their own writing.
Children work with their teachers to create text maps so that they can talk the text, they explore text features and how they are used as well as spending time 'magpieing' high quality vocabulary.
Children produce fantastic pieces of writing following a process of planning, drafting and editing before publishing.
