At Lunsford Primary School we want all children to be able to confidently communicate their knowledge, ideas and emotions through their writing and reach their full potential. We want to prepare children with the essential writing skills they will need for later life by providing an enriched and engaging English curriculum, where they write with a clear purpose across all subjects. Reading and writing are at the very heart of our curriculum.
We are committed to promoting a love for writing and not only giving children opportunities to write in English lessons, but in the wider curriculum too.
We believe that all our pupils should have the opportunity to become fluent, confident writers who are able to write for a range of purposes.
We want our children to develop a wide vocabulary, be able to spell new words accurately and have a good understanding of grammar and punctuation which they can apply to their work.
Our English curriculum is based on CLPE’s The Power of Reading and uses high quality children’s literature as our ‘core texts’ for each term to develop both reading comprehension and writing composition. These diverse texts are carefully chosen and include a range of genres, text types and authors.
