English

Intent

At Bembridge CE Primary, we believe that a quality English curriculum should develop a child's love of reading, writing and discussion. We promote a love of reading, writing and discussion through carefully selecting a range of high-quality texts to be used in the classroom and to read independently. Through this children engage with non-fiction and fiction texts across a range of genres to support their knowledge and understanding of high level vocabulary and writing styles. We aim for all our pupils to take pride in their reading and writing through the skills and knowledge obtained through well planned English lessons and further opportunities to develop and refine their reading and writing across the curriculum. 

 

Implementation

At Bembridge CE Primary, English is taught daily across the school. Alongside this there are also phonics, spellings and reading lessons that happen across the key stages.

Writing, Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar. 

Children follow clear, sequential lessons based around quality model texts that allow for the development of vocabulary and contextualised spellings, punctuation and grammar. These sequences start by engaging the children through a range of reading activities that encouarge the children to read as writers and taking part in discussions based on how the author makes the reader feel. Throughout the sequence the children develop their skills, knowledge and understanding of spelling, punctuation and grammar and have opportunities to use these skills in a range of writing activities. 

 

Reading.

Across Reception and Key Stage 1, phonics is taught through the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised scheme. This scheme follows daily phonics sessions as well as reading sessions across the week. The children have the opportunity to read a book linked to their known sounds throughout the week then read as an e-book at home. Children also take home a weekly sharing book which they share with adults at home to encourage a love of reading. Fluency is a key part of a child's early reading amd this is focused on throughout Key Stage 1 developing then into more of a comprehension focus in Key Stage 2. 

In Key Stage 2, children have access to high-quality texts in their English lessons where children have the opportunity to improve their fluency and comprehension skills through class, indepednent and adult-led reading and discussions. Children follow a reading scheme that includes books from Collins Big Cat as well as a selection of quality books for each year group. Our pupils are encouraged to have a love for reading through sharing books in class, reading independently and adults sharing stories.

 

Impact

They have knowledge of a range of authors and writing styles and being able to express their opinions both through discussions and writing. Pupils will leave with an understanding of what makes a good author and be on their continuing journey to be successful readers and writers. During their time at Bembridge CE Primary they will have obtained skills, knowledge and understanding to support their journeys as readers and writers to support their journeys through education.
