English

 

The national curriculum for English aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • read easily, fluently and with good understanding
  • develop the habit of reading widely and often, for both pleasure and information
  • acquire a wide vocabulary, an understanding of grammar and knowledge of linguistic conventions for reading, writing and spoken language
  • appreciate our rich and varied literary heritage
  • write clearly, accurately and coherently, adapting their language and style in and for a range of contexts, purposes and audiences
  • use discussion in order to learn; they should be able to elaborate and explain clearly their understanding and ideas
  • are competent in the arts of speaking and listening, making formal presentations, demonstrating to others and participating in debate.

High standards of English are embedded into everything we do at Gorringe Park Primary School. Alongside the Merton – agreed curriculum progression, we use the Literacy Tree curriculum as a stimulus for our English learning. This text-based system exposes children to a wide variety of high quality texts and rich language experiences. Grammar, punctuation and spelling are included in all learning opportunities. We aim to foster a life-long love of literature. Our current text map is attached below:
