Key Parts of English
Writing is taught through the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education (CLPE) Power of Reading Scheme, where children will study rich texts and develop their understanding of the language used. The children will then use these ideas in their writing to create imaginative and creative pieces of writing. The English curriculum at Bishop Chavasse has strong cross curricular link to develop the children’s learning in all areas of the curriculum.
Speaking and Listening
While studying the range of texts, the children will develop their knowledge of the books as well as being encouraged for in-depth discussions. Children are always given the chance to discuss their ideas as well as ask and answer questions. English helps the children develop their speaking and listening skills through role play, hot seating, playscripts and many more.
Spelling, vocabulary, grammar and punctuation
All of these aspects are crucial for the children’s learning and are integrated throughout the children’s learning. When discussing the range of texts, the children are given the opportunity to discuss the different vocabulary, grammar and punctuation to develop this aspect of their learning further.
