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.

We love reading in our school and our children have enjoyed meeting have been lucky enough to meet a number of authors, including Alex Milway and Polly Ho-Yen.

 

We were also delighted to welcome the inspirational Abi Elphinstone to our school, where she shared her amazing work with our KS2 children ...

 

Talk for Writing

 

Following our involvement in the Preston Primary Writing Project, we teach our English using Pie Corbett's 'Talk for Writing' approach across the school.

 

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.
