English 2021 - 2022

At Grove Street Primary our collective aim is to develop pupils’ abilities through an integrated programme of spoken language, reading, writing, grammar, punctuation and vocabulary development. A broad and balanced approach to the teaching of English is applied across the curriculum, allowing for the consolidation of taught skills within all learning. We provide a rich environment in which all children can enjoy learning, build self-esteem and develop life-long reading, writing, speaking and listening skills.


We strive for all learners to experience success from the earliest possible stage in order to reach an age-related or higher level of reading and writing by the end of Year 6. Our expectation is that all learners should be able to:


  • Read and write with confidence, fluency and understanding, applying a range of independent strategies to self-monitor and correct.
  • Demonstrate an active interest in reading to learn and reading for pleasure.
  • Have an interest in words and their meaning; developing a growing vocabulary in spoken and written forms.
  • Understand a range of text types and genres and transfer this to the written form across the curriculum.
  • Harness the powers of imagination, inventiveness and critical awareness across the curriculum. 
  • Adopt a suitable technical vocabulary to articulate their responses with clarity.
  • Practice and apply spoken language that suits the needs of the subject.
  • Appreciate that understanding can be expressed through other art forms, including music, drama and dance.

The English Curriculum is delivered using the new National Curriculum English Document for all year groups and the Early Years Foundation Stage (2020).
