Intent for English 

At Grange View we have developed an English curriculum that is creative and engaging.  We appreciate that being able to read and write fluently and confidently are essential for our pupils to flourish and progress in their English learning based on their starting points. We fully value offering our children the opportunity to work with a variety of Literacy resources and approaches, such as RWInc, Talk4Writing, Literacy Shed and Mr P ICT Read Write Perform to facilitate and support the teaching and learning of English concepts in Reading and Writing throughout the school. This approach is pinnacle to the development of our children’s literary thinking and equipping them for their next stages at Middle School.  Reinforcement is achieved by ensuring knowledge is revisited regularly throughout the year groups to create fluent reading and writing for all. Our children need to develop these necessary reading and writing skills so they can access the whole curriculum and become deeper thinkers by using their literary knowledge. English is the foundation for understanding the world and we want our children to know the purpose behind their learning and to apply their knowledge in their everyday lives, with the intention of raising aspirations and creating a continual love of learning English inclusively for all.
