At Sharmans Cross, we are passionate about English, providing rich and inspiring opportunities in English lessons and across the curriculum. We ensure that all the different strands of English (writing, reading, spelling, handwriting and speaking and listening) are taught effectively and creatively.
We provide opportunities for children to read and access a range of powerful, stimulating texts to instil and maintain a love of reading. Our ‘Accelerated Reader’ reading programme supports and encourages this love and gives our children and their parents instant feedback on their reading.
Our curriculum provides opportunities for children to write creatively across all subjects, in order to inspire and engage our young writers. We also provide a range of opportunities for children to engage in speaking and listening activities, including drama and role-play, debates, presentations, group work and paired and group discussions.
