English

English is taught using liveEnglsih 6ly and creative methods through a variety of texts and resources incorporating ICT from PP1 onwards. 

Progress is carefully monitored and pupils are supported so they achieve their potential.

The library is stocked with fiction and non-fiction books. Visits by speakers and authors are welcomed. Pupils take part in national competitions, More Able Writers’ Workshops and trips to the theatre.

Our primary aim is to develop confidence and achievement in the skills of:

  •     Reading
  •     Writing
  •     Comprehension
  •     Spelling
  •     Grammar
  •     Punctuation
  •     Speaking
  •     Listening

This enables our pupils to leave us with an enthusiasm for English as they enter their secondary school education.
