Pupils will value their English education in all areas; speaking and listening, reading, writing and all that encompasses this. Pupils will have a profound command of the English language enabling them to not only read for pleasure but empowering them through the acquisition of knowledge and wisdom. Our pupils will be confident to discuss, explain, present and debate through the wide and varied use of the English language. They will be fluent in transcription and creative in composition demonstrating a love of English which is built on a foundation of good quality texts from the diversity of modern texts to great historic literature. As with all curriculum subjects the relationship of trust between staff and pupils is at the forefront of teaching, progression and pupil attainment.
We base our curriculum around literature in order to foster a passion and love for reading because at Bapchild & Tonge School and Nursery we know that our children thrive when their learning has a purposeful context and provides an immersive experience. We have worked hard to provide our children with rich and varied learning opportunities that help them to become confident and enthusiastic learners. We enable our children to have a positive attitude towards communication, independently express their emotions and their ideas; the acquisition of vocabulary is truly empowering to our learners. Through our English Curriculum, we strive to teach the children how important their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills will be in the real world. By giving this context to their learning, the children understand the value of English to them now, and in their futures.
