What is our Vision for English?
At Eye Primary School, we believe that English and communication are key life skills. Through our English curriculum, we will help to inspire and develop children's love of reading, writing and discussion. This will enable our children to communicate effectively and creatively through spoken and written language and equip them with the skills to become lifelong learners.
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 follow a whole-school mastery approach to writing through the programme Pathways to Write. We teach reading through 'whole class reading', based on evidence-informed reading instruction. We teach spellings through focus phonemes each week, building on the children's prior phonic knowledge.
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.
