Subject Leader: Mrs Boylan

At Panshanger Primary School we follow the National Curriculum Programmes of study for English, and it is our aim that in English our pupils can:

  • read fluently and with good understanding
  • develop the enjoyment of reading for both pleasure and information
  • acquire a wide vocabulary, an understanding of grammar and knowledge of linguistic conventions for reading, writing and spoken language
  • appreciate our rich and varied literary heritage
  • write clearly, accurately and coherently, adapting their language and style in and for a range of contexts, purposes and audiences
  • use discussion in order to learn; they should be able to elaborate and explain clearly their understanding and ideas
  • are competent in the arts of speaking and listening, making formal presentations, demonstrating to others and participating in debate.  

Our phonics teaching follows Letters and Sounds and is supported by other schemes including Jolly Phonics.
