Curriculum Outline

In our English sessions we develop our comprehension skills when reading with the goal of becoming independent and critical thinkers. We try to infer, summarise, question, clarify and predict elements of both fiction and non-fiction texts. Our children are taught the importance of grammar, so they can communicate clearly and effectively. In Year 4 we complete both shorter and extended pieces of writing. In these sessions we focus on specific skills and aim to help build writing stamina. We also focus on children's spoken language, teaching children to articulate their thoughts out loud.
