Statement of Intent
At Greenlands Community Primary School, English is not only a daily discrete lesson, but is at the cornerstone of the entire curriculum. We are proud to offer the children a text rich learning environment where creativity and imagination can be fuelled. When our pupils leave Greenlands, we intend them to be passionate readers, who read fluently and widely and are able to express preferences and opinions about the texts that they read. We intend to mould our children to become writers who can adapt their language and style for a range of contexts and re-read, edit and improve their own writing. We aim to expose the pupils to a wide range of vocabulary so that they are able to decipher new words and use them when speaking and writing in both formal and informal contexts. At Greenlands, we set high expectations for all of our children to take pride in their work while encouraging their imaginations to flourish. We recognise the importance of nurturing a culture where creativity is pivotal, and provide opportunities to engage learning and celebrate the individual skills of our pupils, recognising everyone as unique with their own aspirations, talents and dreams.
Reading at home
Here is Miss Spedding, our Year One Teaching Assistant, reading with a Year One child. Please watch to learn some ideas that you could try out to support your child when reading at home.
We will soon be adding more videos, including those aimed at parents of Key Stage Two children.
