English at Robert Wilkinson Primary Academy is delivered to enthuse and inspire all children to read and write naturally, creatively and independently.

Writing

Visual literacy in the form of animations, photographs and pictures alongside drama are approaches used to support learning and instill a love of writing across the year groups. Composition, spelling, punctuation, grammar and handwriting are interlinked during sessions. Purpose and audience are integral so that writing is relevant, meaningful and enjoyable.

 

Reading

A lifelong love of reading is actively encouraged through both guided and whole class reading sessions. We endeavour to promote a positive reading culture throughout school in classroom settings, the school library and through book talk. Phonics teaching in FS2 and Key Stage 1 provides children with firm foundations to equip them with the skills necessary to become fluent readers. As children progress through school, they practise a range of comprehension skills using a wide variety of engaging stimulus.
