English at Buckingham Park Primary School

Reading, writing, speaking and listening are life skills. It is through language that we explore, organise and make sense of our experiences. The way children understand and use language is crucial to their social and academic development and will affect all aspects of their life at home, school and in the wider world - No other area is as truly cross-curricular as language.

With this in mind, English is developed through reading, writing, speaking and listening, both across the curriculum and as a subject in its own right, ensuring there is opportunity to demonstrate high level literacy across all subjects.

Our aim is to produce experienced and confident communicators; children who are able to sensitively select the most appropriate and effective means of communication from a wide variety of knowledge, skills, styles and techniques.

Our teaching will enable the children to:

  • Read and write with confidence, fluency and understanding, orchestrating a range of independent strategies to self-monitor and correct;
  • Have an interest in books and read for enjoyment;
  • Have an interest in words, their meanings; developing a growing vocabulary in spoken and written forms;
  • Understand a range of text types and genres, and be able to write in a variety of styles and forms appropriate to the situation;
  • Develop the powers of imagination, inventiveness and critical awareness;
  • Have a suitable technical vocabulary to articulate their responses.
