Lessons in English follow the pattern of reading into writing, whereby the language features and organisation of a text is analysed to form a success criteria to develop the children’s writing. A variety of picture books are used across each year group, leading to both fiction and non-fiction writing.


Text types:

  • Narrative / Stories of many varieties
  • Recount
  • Explanation
  • Discussion
  • Persuasion
  • Instructions
  • Non-chronological report / Information text
  • Play scripts


English (including grammar) is taught every day in each class for at least one hour per day. Reading is taught outside the English lesson in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. Children are taught to read fluently and develop their prosody as well as developing their comprehension skills.






Assessment of English

 A summative assessment for Reading takes place during the summer term for Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6. Ongoing assessments take place using FFT (these assess word recognition, fluency and comprehension). In Year 1 the children complete the Phonics Screening Test in June, which assesses their ability to segment and blend words.


Writing is assessed regularly, using the relevant year groups’ statements on the school's tracking system. 


 Spelling ability is additionally assessed on a 1-1 basis linked to the new curriculum objectives and an individual record is kept for each child showing which words can be spelt correctly from the relevant year groups’ word lists
