English at St Mary's

We believe that  high quality texts should lie at the heart of the English curriculum and we aim to foster a love of reading in all children.  Their enthusiasm for real books begins in Apple Tree Class, where our youngest pupils enjoy stories and begin the basics of reading aloud through to Oak Tree Class where Year 6 are encouraged to debate big questions and enjoy reading a range of genres.  'Reading is breathing in; writing is breathing out,' so children learn the craft of good communication by studying a wide range of excellent authors.  We underpin this with a strong emphasis on excellent presentation, good spelling and a thorough understanding of grammar.
