TEACHING AND LEARNING IN ENGLISH AT GRANGE PRIMARY SCHOOL:
At Grange Primary School, we believe that literacy and communication are key life skills that enable children to access all learning across the curriculum and participate fully as a member of society.
The aim of our English curriculum is to develop each child’s abilities in reading, writing and speaking and listening, so that they leave our school with the skills to communicate their ideas and emotions confidently and give them a deeper understanding of the world they inhabit.
Our English Subject Leader is Miss Hesketh.

PWP and Talk for Writing
This year, we are involved in the Preston Primary Writing Project, an exciting opportunity to develop our reading and writing provision using Pie Corbett's 'Talk for Writing' approach.
Imitate, innovate, invent:
Through this approach, children learn to internalise stories and texts, giving them the structure and vocabulary to be able to respond to texts and write their own versions confidently and creatively.
