Welcome to our English Curriculum Page!


In English, children are familiarised with a range of genres covering fiction, non-fiction and poetry. Cross-curricular links are encouraged in order to embed learning and broaden children’s understanding of specific topics.

Lots of reading takes place in school and there is excitement about improvements being made to the library areas. Several new books have been bought and a new section of graphic novels created. The brand new books for Year 5 have been a huge hit so far.
