At Stock C of E primary we believe that a quality English curriculum should develop children’s love of reading, writing and discussion. The acquisition of language skills is of the upmost importance to us and therefore the teaching of all aspects of English is given a high priority within school. We believe that confidence in basic language skills enables children to communicate creatively and imaginatively, preparing them for their future journey through education and beyond.
Writing is an integral part of our curriculum. All children from Foundation Stage to Year 6 are provided with many opportunities to develop and apply their writing skills across the curriculum. We recognise the importance of nurturing a culture where children take pride in their writing, can write clearly and accurately and adapt their language and style for a range of contexts. We develop the children’s understanding of grammar, punctuation and vocabulary enabling them to use these appropriately. Strategies are taught which enable our children to become independent and resilient learners, building stamina when writing across the curriculum.
