At St.Mary's we provide children with cross - curricular opportunities to learn and use the skills outlined in the English Programmes of Study in the National Curriculum.
We are passionate in making sure that children at our school:
- Are life - long lovers of reading who are able to use their skills of reading to help them in the wider world.
Acquire skills and attitudes that will ensure that they become fluent writers in preparation for the next stage of their learning.
We have embedded a 'Talk for Writing' approach across the whole school so that children have a rich oral vocabulary and are able to rehearse their writing skills before they use them.
Below are the Programmes of Study outlined by the National Curriculum.
