English English provides learners with the means to communicate clearly across the curriculum and in the wider world. Through a broad English curriculum taught daily, children learn to read, write and speak fluently, allowing them to effectively share their ideas, listen to others and become confident and proficient language users. At Clapham Manor we develop a strong love of reading and writing through a curriculum rich in opportunities to access a range of literature and apply language skills creatively across many contexts. Reading Teachers at Clapham Manor work to develop a lifelong love of reading in all children which feeds imagination and incites curiosity. Children have access to books at levels matched to their needs in all classrooms, as well as a huge variety of high quality, modern texts in the popular school library. A range of different texts from classics, popular authors and non -fiction to graphic novels and film are used to teach across the school. Children develop their word reading through a strong emphasis on high quality phonics provision throughout EYFS and KS1. All children have a reading journal to take home along with their school reading books, and are encouraged to read every day with someone at home. Writing We develop children’s skills in writing for pleasure and purpose. They express their ideas effectively across the school curriculum and in a range of genres and contexts. An understanding of key spelling, punctuation and grammar (EGPS) skills and knowledge is developed which children are able to apply in creative contexts. Children are encouraged to be independent writers, able to plan, draft and edit their own writing. They can discuss and assess with their peers and adults, and respond to feedback and clear targets. The school follows a clear handwriting strategy, which enables children to become efficient and fluent writers. Celebrating Differences Children join the school at a range of stages of development in English, and the school provides these learners with access to the curriculum and develops their confidence. Over 41 languages are represented across the school curriculum. This range of language is celebrated and used to support the development of English through access to bi-lingual texts and encouraging parents and carers to share stories from a range of cultures.
