At Hummersea, our English curriculum is planned to immerse children in a range of high-quality texts to develop a life-long love of reading and writing. Our aim is for all children to develop their speaking, listening, reading and writing skills, with language acquisition at the heart of what we do. To achieve this, teachers are motivated to make English interesting and exciting, engaging the pupils with the awe and excitement of carefully chosen books to inspire and drive a thirst for knowledge and enjoyment of reading and writing. 

Through our English Curriculum, we strive to teach the children how important and relevant their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills will be to them in everyday life . We want our children to understand the significance of English, not only now, but in their futures’ and align it with our school motto ‘Be The Best You Can Be!’ This is why we advocate reading widely and as often as possible, alongside creating a culture where children can write clearly, creatively, accurately and adapt their language and style for a range of contexts, audience and give writing a purpose. 

We believe that all children can become fluent readers and writers. Reading is at the very heart of our curriculum and happens daily. In order to develop confident and enthusiastic readers and writers, we have developed an approach which links in to key texts which supports a range of genres, authors and cultural themes. This provides our children with regular opportunities to write for a range of purposes and audiences. Writing tasks are specific and meaningful, and engage children in illustrating how their writing skills can be applied to different contexts. The use of high-quality texts is vital to what we do and the basis for our writing is around a wide range of books.

Our English curriculum will result in enthusiastic readers and writers who enjoy sharing their English knowledge and love to discuss and share their ideas. Pupils will make good progress from their own personal starting points. By the end of Year Six they will be able to read fluently, with expression and be confident in their understanding of what they have read. They will also write clearly and accurately and adapt their language and style for a range of contexts, purposes and audiences.
