As a school, we are committed to providing a rich, ambitious curriculum which cumulatively develops the skills and knowledge of English. We believe that by providing purposeful opportunities to apply these knowledge and skills, we will ignite curiosity and passion in our students.
English is an integral part of effective communication – both receptive and expressive.
We will meet the aims by using a long term plan detailing texts, genres and focus for learning from Nursery to Year two. We will also use detailed long term plans that detail coverage of reading and writing skills from Nursery to Year two. Teachers will create Short Term Planning in which lessons are planned and sequenced so that new knowledge and skills build on previous teaching.
At Crownfield Infant and Nursery School, we expect that by the end of KS1 our pupils will discuss their favourite books, authors and genres; will read for pleasure and information, regularly and often; will write for a range of reasons inside and outside of the classroom curriculum; will have confidence in their knowledge and skills; will successfully apply their knowledge and skills to national assessments. The vast majority will make expected progress with a smaller percentage of pupils making accelerated progress; demonstrate confidence in the vast range of skills and knowledge taught.
In order for this to happen, the English leader takes responsibility for the monitoring of the English curriculum and the standards achieved by the pupils. The English leader will monitor for appropriate pitch and progression at least once every term. This monitoring takes the form of; lesson observations and feedback in each year group per term; learning walks and pupil voice conversations; planning scrutiny followed by support where necessary; book scrutiny every half term; termly data analysis and subject report to Governors.
