English

Taught reading sessions will be consistent throughout EYFS to Year 6 using high quality texts, focusing on many different question types which relate to the content domains. The content domain sets out the relevant elements from the National Curriculum programme of study.  In EYFS early Reading skills will be taught alongside some basic comprehension. In KS1 to KS2 a sequence of lessons will be taught building on a specific content domain each week. Additionally, a ‘treasure chest’ activity will be planned focusing on a range of content domains.

Please see the attached reading stems for EYFS, KS1 and KS2 which you can use when reading with your child at home.

The teaching of Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar, is a strong element which runs throughout the whole of the English Curriculum. Year group teaching expectations are very specific and are taught as both discrete sessions as well as explored through reading and writing activities. 

Please see the attached spelling lists for KS1 and KS2. 

Children will experience writing in a variety of fiction, non-fiction and poetry genres. Regular writing opportunities across a range of subjects are used to develop and extend skills. 

At Broadbent Fold we work hard to ensure that children have the ability to produce fluent, legible joined up handwriting. We teach and practise the skills from nursery when we focus on pencil grip and letter formation through to Year 6 where we finesse our skills.
