The English Curriculum at High Lane is about developing the skills of oracy, reading and writing to enable our children to be able to make informed choices about the style in which they speak and write. We strongly believe that enthusiastic, curious readers develop the tools to become creative, accomplished writers. We think it is essential to show children how to ‘build up’ their writing from words to sentence, sentences to paragraphs and paragraphs to a complete structure of a text. We do this through children’s immersion in engaging stimulus which enables our pupils to be creative and demonstrate their skills independently. To do this, they need to be skilled at producing written and oral outcomes for a variety of purposes. We foster this by developing children’s deep understanding of purpose within genres and learning about why the text and language features within these genres are needed.
