The teaching of English at Peterchurch Primary School aims to develop in all our pupils a love of reading, confidence and competence in spoken language as well as skilled and articulate writers.
We teach phonics in Reception and Key Stage 1 using ‘Letters and Sounds’ and continue to focus of spelling, punctuation and grammar as children move through the school.
English lessons are based around high-quality texts with linked speaking, reading and writing tasks in engaging contexts.
In Key Stage 2, the children are encouraged to write for a range of purposes and view English and language as a powerful means of self-expression.
Above all, we want to create readers and writers for life, with the skills to succeed in later life.
