Welcome to English at St Nicolas and St Mary CE Primary School
Here you will shortly find our English curriculum map showing the journey
our children take as readers and writers through years 1 -6. We use a range of engaging quality
core texts to explore different genres of writing. More information on this to follow this term.
The tabs to the right explain our school approach to each area of English learning including details of our phonics programme. Within each tab you will also find some handy resources and links so that you can support your child at home.
Our English vision
Our vision is to empower pupils to express themselves confidently and creatively through their speech and writing. Pupils will leave our school with the tools needed to read, write and present their work in a range of contexts. Teachers will provide access to a wide variety of texts and experiences which stimulate the imagination and inspire writing outcomes. Our pupils will develop a love for reading that will broaden their horizons and also equip them with the skills necessary to access all other curriculum areas. Pupils will learn to write for real audiences and purposes through exciting, cross-curricular units of work.
