At Wisborough Green, we aim to ensure that all children foster a love of reading and writing to equip them for their future and to promote a lifelong enjoyment of the subject. Children take part in daily English lessons where they are taught the skills required for reading, writing, editing, drama and speaking.
Our English provision is supported by The CLPE, Power of Reading scheme which ensures that our curriculum is enriched through use of high quality texts from the Foundation Stage through to Year 6.
Early Years and Key Stage 1 take part in daily phonics lessons using the Songs for Sound scheme to support word reading skills. Key Stage 2 use our 'RIED' and 'Reading Gems' model to secure their comprehension skills. Children take part in individual, paired, group, whole class and teacher led reading.
Through daily spelling lessons with a focus on phonics in Early Years and KS1 and spelling patterns in KS2, children are able to embed their knowledge into other areas of the rich English curriculum.
Through the use of drama, reader's theatre and immersion sessions, children are exposed to a broader vocabulary in which they can really express their creativity - which is evident in the writing process. This also provides the children with meaningful contexts and purposes for writing.
