Palterton Primary School

English, including Phonics, at Palterton Primary

At Palterton, we know that good English teaching and learning is the key to our children accessing the rest of the curriculum and having the skills for future life and learning. We aim to provide a rich and rewarding curriculum, and to raise achievement and aspiration by having high expectations, teaching systematically, and building on what has come before.

The subject of English comprises of Reading, Writing and Spoken Language.  We believe that supporting children to develop speaking and listening skills helps them to learn to read and write, and this underpins our teaching and learning.

We also believe that exploring and developing spoken language, reading and writing, should be inspiring, rewarding and enjoyable.
