English

At Peatmoor Community Primary School we believe that a high-quality English curriculum will develop children’s love of reading, writing and discussion. We want to instil both a love of reading and books in our children. We want them to be avid readers; children who read fluently and widely and who are able to express preferences and opinions about the texts that they read. We want them to read for pleasure, having access to a wide range of text types, genres and authors and for them to make informed opinions about their favourites. We want to produce children who write with confidence and accuracy for a variety of purposes and audiences whilst developing their own individual flair.  We want our children to be able to write with grammatical accuracy and be able to apply spelling patterns correctly using a neat handwriting style. We aim to expose our children to a wide range of vocabulary so that they are able to decipher new words, then use them in their writing and when speaking both informally and formally. We also aim for our children to apply all of these English skills to all areas of the curriculum.
