English

At Sudbury Primary School, our aim is to ensure that our pupils are confident users of all aspects of English and that they develop an understanding of the purpose and importance of English in their lives.

 

English is taught daily across the school. Links are made between genres of writing, Whole Class Reading, Guided Reading, reading for pleasure, and the Imaginative Learning Project, as this approach has been shown to deepen learning and engagement. Our pupils are encouraged to read for pleasure and to read widely, as our aim is for pupils to become life-long readers. We use the Project X Origins reading scheme for Guided Reading and the Letters and Sounds phonics programme. These include fiction texts which feature diverse stories and characters, and non-fiction texts which provide pupils with knowledge of the world.

 

Writing is an integral part of learning at Sudbury. We follow the Talk 4 Writing programme, which is an engaging teaching framework developed by Pie Corbett, supported by Julia Strong. It is powerful because it is based on the principles of how children learn. It enables children to imitate the language they need for a particular topic orally, before reading and analysing model texts, and then writing their own version.

 

We use the Letter-join handwriting programme in order to develop handwriting, with cursive writing from Year 1 upwards.
