English/Literacy

Literacy provision – including provision for literacy recovery

English is at the heart of both education and our society. It is vital that children are taught to communicate their ideas and emotions effectively through the four strands of our curriculum: reading, writing, grammar and speaking and listening.

Reading

Reading is an incredibly important skill which is the foundation for children’s learning throughout their time at school. Children will begin their reading journey through using a carefully selected scheme. They will receive daily phonics sessions in Reception and KS1 and will be regularly assessed and grouped so that each pupil is supported and challenged at an appropriate level for their ability.

Whilst children are still learning to decode (at word-reading level), it is essential that they are taught comprehension skills too. Each year group will receive whole-class reading lessons where a range of literature is discussed, dissected and explored. High-level, engaging texts will be presented to the children and lively sessions promote the importance of reading for pleasure.

Writing

Children will be taught to write in a variety of genres. Within the Early Years setting, children will be encouraged to begin making marks on paper, before learning correct letter formation and using their understanding of phonics to build words. As they move into Key Stage 1, the children will build on their phonetic understanding to spell a wider range of words and to begin combining these words to form sentences, using their imaginations to start telling stories or recounting events.

In Key Stage 2, there will be more of a focus on developing the child’s narrative voice by exposing them to a wealth of rich, inspiring texts. There will be an emphasis on the audience and purpose for writing and encouraging children to adapt their writing accordingly. Throughout their learning journey, children will build their skills before publishing their final independent piece.

Grammar

Grammar is an essential part of the English curriculum for Year 1 onwards. Children will receive weekly discrete grammar lessons support their understanding whilst teaching ensures that these objectives are interwoven into the writing learning journey so that children are given the chance to embed new concepts without dampening creativity.

Spelling

Children will be taught spelling rules and patterns through a range of activities.

Speaking and Listening

Spoken language underpins the development of reading, writing and our curriculum will reflect this. Teachers will have high expectations of vocabulary and children will be required to explain their answers fully in all lessons. Drama opportunities will be used to  support children with their spoken language and ability to communicate to an audience, but it will also be used to inspire and shape their writing.

We are committed to providing extracurricular or co-curricular activities to enhance our daily curriculum. At Cherry Fields, we would add to these opportunities as the school grows which in turns means the staff grows in number and therefore the spread of activities within the co-curriculum is enhanced.
