English at Townfield


We follow the Early Years Statutory Frameowrk and the National Curriculum and have invested in  ‘Read to Write’ for our English writing lessons. We follow Read, Write Inc in Reception and Key Stage One and have a whole class reading system in place in Key Stage Two. Our curriculum is ambitious; our high ceiling and expectations enable all pupils including those with SEN and those who are disadvantaged to achieve. Our English curriculum prepares pupils to communicate effectively and confidently with others, using the spoken and written word.

 

At Townfield, the development of vocabulary is at the heart of both English and the non-core curriculum area and we exploit opportunities to make links and create a vocabulary rich environment. Spelling, grammar and punctuation are taught systematically and opportunities to apply these skills in a progressive and contextual way are deliberately planned for. We want all children to be independent, fluent and reflective readers. From their starting points, pupils are taught how to read using our Read, Write, Inc systematic phonics programme. Running alongside this and beyond, we teach reading through ‘whole class shared reading’. We explicitly model and teach reading comprehension skills to ensure pupils are able to access and engage with text. We aim to promote a life-long love of reading which develops their cultural, emotional and intellectual awareness. 

 

Our English curriculum is divided into the following areas :-
