English Curriculum

At the heart of every life experience, children need to be able to communicate effectively and creatively with the world at large through spoken and written language. Here at Llangrove CE Academy, we encourage every child to enjoy and appreciate the rich variety of literature so that they can respond with knowledge and enthusiasm.

In Speaking and Listening, we do this by:
• encouraging all children to express their opinions, articulate feelings and respond appropriately to a range of situations;
• enabling pupils to participate in different groupings to present ideas with confidence, valuing the views of others.

In Reading, we do this by:
• teaching phonics to appreciate the awareness of the link between sounds and letters (using ORT Floppy Phonics);
• giving every child their own personal reading record and books to take home to read with parents and carers which challenge and engage pupils to develop their own love of learning;
• and providing a range of reading opportunities to help children to understand the choices of vocabulary and structures that authors use.

In Writing, we do this by:
• setting high expectations that all our children will take pride in their work, having a fluent handwriting style (using PenPals handwriting scheme);
• providing inspiring activities to motivate children so that they see themselves as ‘writers’;
• focussing on the essential skills of grammar, punctuation and spelling alongside developing the powers of imagination and inventiveness.
