Key Stage 2 English

A passion for reading and writing, an ability to think and work independently, an ability to persevere, an enquiring mind, a good knowledge of grammar, an ability to share ideas, is able to attempt new things and explore creativity.

We are purposefully empowering every child in key stage 2 to write, speak and think creatively through a passionately taught English curriculum steeped in rich and stimulating vocabulary. All pupils are nurtured to read for pleasure and purpose whilst acknowledging the gift of reading as an essential key to all learning.

Literacy has a pre-eminent place in education and in society. A high-quality education in Literacy will teach pupils to speak and write fluently so that they can communicate their ideas and emotions to others and through their reading and listening, so others can communicate with them. Through reading in particular, pupils have a chance to develop culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually.
