We aim for our English curriculum to spark a curiosity to learn and inspire children to develop a lifelong love of reading and writing. Our novel-based approach enables children to develop the expertise to read and write for a range of purposes.
By using whole-class texts that are most relevant to our pupils, teachers map out the sequence of a unit and decide upon strategies to teach. During each block, we aim to give the children the opportunity to develop their vocabulary and reading/writing skills by engaging with a range high-quality texts.
At Coton Green Primary School, we use Read Write Inc’ on a daily basis to teach synthetic phonics and reading in EYFS and KS1. In KS2, we use Pearson Bug Club to teach comprehension in discreet lessons. For those learners who need further decoding practice, ‘Read Write Inc. Phonics’ is used.
