English is taught and supported by the wider curriculum, discrete skills lessons are taught in English, with children having the opportunity to apply these skills across the whole curriculum. Through a text rich writing curriculum, we will expose children to new worlds, experiences and ideas, expanding their horizons. These texts will enable children to become vocabulary rich and inspire children to emulate writing styles they are exposed to. We will make links with other subjects to provide meaningful contexts and purposes for writing. Children will identify as writers and will develop their own writing voices, learning that through writing they can articulate their thinking, express themselves effectively and creatively and communicate with others.
Objectives are taken from the National Curriculum providing focus and depth of learning.
