At Chesterfield we provide an engaging and innovative English curriculum that promotes high standards of language and literacy by equipping children with the skills to speak and write fluently.
The development of children’s language is crucial to their success across the curriculum. Through a diverse range of reading opportunities, children develop a love of reading for both pleasure and information. These skills enable children to become confident communicators and active citizens who make a positive contribution to society.
In addition to daily English sessions, children develop early reading skills through the use of the Read Write Inc. programme from reception to Year 2, and beyond for those who need additional support.
In KS2, we follow our own English Comprehension programme, which has been designed to develop children into confident speakers and willing writers.
During all lessons across the school, children are actively encouraged to develop their spoken language capabilities and improve their listening skills through a wide range of activities.
