English

High quality education in English will ensure that our pupils learn to write and speak fluently so that they can communicate their ideas and emotions to others. 

At St David's C of E Primary School we use LETTERS and SOUNDS to teach phonics.

The school uses a variety of book banded reading materials & schemes to support the children's development.

 We plan for English using the 2014 National Curriculum

We aim 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
  • are competent in the arts of speaking and listening, making formal presentations, demonstrating to others and participating in debate.
