English

At Stebbing Primary School we believe that a secure knowledge of the English language is fundamental to everyday life. Our English work unites and develops children’s ability to listen, speak, read and write for a wide range of purposes. It is the purpose of the teaching and learning of English at Stebbing to prepare children for their future. Children are enabled to express themselves creatively and imaginatively as they become enthusiastic and critical readers of stories, poetry and drama, as well as non-fiction and media texts.

 

At Stebbing Primary School we encourage children to:

  • express themselves confidently in both verbal and written forms, understanding the nuances of different text-types and genres
  • read with expression and comprehension
  • have fluent and legible handwriting
  • have a curiosity about words, their meanings and develop a growing vocabulary
  • have a secure knowledge of the basics of the English language, spelling patterns and grammar conventions
  • be interested in books, read with enjoyment and evaluate and justify their preferences
  • develop a love of language.

 

PSHE

We follow the PSHE Association curriculum. We have developed our own planning toolkits from this.
