English is taught daily using resources including HFL and Literacy Shed resources. Children are taught a range of fiction, non-fiction and poetry texts according to the 2014 National Curriculum. Lessons are sequenced to allow children to regularly complete extended pieces of writing. Grammar and writing are embedded into each lesson. Children are taught to join their handwriting in a neat and legible style and are rewarded a pen licence once this is achieved. Children are encouraged to sustain this level of presentation across all subjects.
Assessment for learning continually takes place. Children take an active role in editing their work and are encouraged to strive to improve.
