Wisdom & Faith


Within English lessons the children will develop skills in the following areas:

SPEAKING AND LISTENING: The children will take part in a wide range of activities including 'role play', 'story time', 'poetry recital', and 'class discussions' as well as activities incorporated in other curriculum areas. 

READING: We will be studying fairytales, traditional tales and nursery rhymes including titles, events, predictions and understanding. We will also study poems and non-fiction texts. The children will read individually, as a group and as a whole class each week. 

WRITING: The children will be developing their handwriting skills, learning to spell words in everyday use and concentrating on writing stories and poems independently. 


PHONICS: The children will continue to take part in daily phonics sessions using the RML phonics scheme.
