English

English is at the heart of our curriculum, with opportunities to apply skills embedded throughout our curriculum in order to  improve their learning in education, work and life. Lessons focus on a book study linked to our Pathway Projects—these texts change regularly as we discover new and exciting texts that inspire. A range of writing opportunities are embedded within our Project Pathways, providing context and purpose for our pieces and narrative writing focuses on the seven story plots: 

Overcoming the monster

Rags to Riches

Voyage and Return

Quest

Comedy

Tragedy

Rebirth

Poetry is taught through an immersive day each term across the school.

Spelling, punctuation and grammar are taught discretely and then applied in our writing across the curriculum.
