Loving & Learning Together In Harmony With Christ

Learning through English

The English curriculum at St Anne’s aims to develop each pupil’s ability to listen, speak, read and write for a wide range of purposes, including the communication of their ideas, opinions and feelings. Our pupils are enabled to express themselves creatively and imaginatively as they become enthusiastic and critical readers of stories, poetry and drama, as well as of non-fiction and media texts. We aim to provide our pupils with a deeper understanding of how language works by looking at its patterns, structures and origins. Resulting in the children of St Anne’s using their knowledge, skills and understanding in speaking and writing across a range of different situations.

 Our objectives in the teaching of English skills are:

  • To enable children to speak clearly and audibly, to communicate effectively through speech and to take account of the perspective of those to whom they are speaking;
  • To encourage children to listen with concentration, in order to identify the main points, and sometimes the detail, of what they have heard;
  • To show children how to adapt their speech to a wide range of circumstances and demands;
  • To enable children to become effective communicators, both verbal and non-verbal, through a variety of drama activities;
  • To help children become confident, independent readers, developing their understanding of meaning conveyed at word, sentence and whole text level;
  • To enable children to develop as enthusiastic and reflective readers, through contact with a wide range of different types of material, including challenging and substantial texts;
  • To foster the enjoyment of writing for a wide range of purposes, and a recognition of its value;
  • To encourage accurate and meaningful writing, be it narrative or non-fiction;
  • To develop skills in planning, drafting, evaluating and editing their writing;
  • To engender in children a love of literature and an appreciation of our English heritage;
  • To enable and encourage pupils to apply their English skills across the whole curriculum.
