At Wesley Methodist Primary School our English strategy follows the 2014 National Curriculum. Our primary aim is to increase children’s confidence, enjoyment and ability in reading, writing and communication. We promote a love of reading and writing whereby children want to read and write spontaneously with enjoyment. We ensure that we provide all children with depth, breadth and ambition in their learning – ensuring that our curriculum is well sequenced and building on knowledge and skills gained as children progress through school.
We strive for our children to develop a passion for English to aid them in later life and to enable them to become lifelong learners. We recognise the importance of nurturing a culture where children take pride in their writing, can write clearly and accurately and adapt their language and style for a range of contexts. We want to inspire children to be confident in the art of speaking and listening, and who can use discussion to communicate and further their learning.
