Our Intent for English

At Woolston Church of England Primary School, English and the teaching of English is the foundation of our curriculum. Our intent is for every child to become literate and progress in the areas of reading, writing, speaking and listening.

English, at Woolston Church of England Primary School, is delivered through discrete English lessons as well as within the wider curriculum, where we continue to embed basic skills and promote high expectations for all children. The use of high quality texts, exposure to new vocabulary, meeting curriculum expectations and progressing through skills, enables our children to engage with a creative and balanced English curriculum, which in turn, encourages them to read for pleasure, enables them to express their thoughts and ideas clearly and creatively through the written word, write creatively and coherently and above all, become primary literate.  We also intend to create writers who can re-read, edit and improve their own writing and enable pupils to be able to confidently use the essential skills of grammar, punctuation and spelling.  At Woolston CE, we set high expectations for all our children to take pride in their work and have a fluent, cursive handwriting style alongside allowing their imaginations to flourish.
